We spoke about her most memorable moment from the ESPY awards, her relationship with the Dolphins, Title IX and what else she'd like to accomplish in her life.
What are your favorite ESPY memories?
"Obviously, the Jamie Foxx 'Can I be your tennis ball?' song really sticks out to me. And then I got to meet Tom Cruise one year. Tom Cruise is amazing and I was really excited to meet him."
Why does Cruise stick out? Is he your favorite actor?
"He's Tom Cruise. Do I need to say any more? He's one of those guys you'd never think you could see. Oh my God, is that Tom Cruise? I'm totally going to meet Tom Cruise."
You probably towered over him.
"Actually, I don't remember that. I don't think he's as small as everyone thinks he is. I remember being so excited and he was telling me how much he loved tennis and blah, blah, blah. I was just sitting there thinking this is so cool."
