“The Big Bang Theory” star Kaley Cuoco and her professional tennis player fiancé Ryan Sweeting both share a serious love of tennis.

Before Cuoco rose to fame as an actress, she was a nationally ranked amateur tennis player. She gave up the sport professionally in 2002 when she started her role as Bridget Hennessy on “8 Simple Rules,” but it’s clear from her choice of this week’s throwback Thursday picture — and choice of fiancé — that tennis still close to her heart.

“#tbt to one of my first tennis tournaments at 6 yrs old. Funny how life comes full circle :),” she posts to Instagram.

Fortunately for Cuoco, she got a great wedding gift that fits with this theme after getting “married” on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”: a “bride” tennis bag. Did you know about Cuoco’s tennis connection?
