“She played her first professional Wimbledon last year and her manager contacted my manager and apparently she watches Big Bang and he knew I was a fan of tennis and he said, ‘Is there any chance Jim could come to Wimbledon? He could sit in the players’ box with us.”Parsons was at Centre Court on Thursday July 3, 2014, to witness Ms. Bouchard's semi-final victory over Simona Halep.
