One little girl’s admirable ambition has made her want to be like the most powerful athlete in the world — Serena Williams.

Proud mother and businesswoman Kimberly J. Harris posted a Facebook video of her daughter Mimi sharing her love for Williams. In the video, which has close to a million views, the toddler excitedly tells her mother that her skills are on the same level as the tennis great.

With a Sports Illustrated cover featuring Williams in her hands, Mimi is proud to share her admiration for the athlete. In the video, the adorable little one recalls her own excellent skills on the court:

“I was like Serena Williams!”

“Why?” Harris asked.

“Because I just shot it and it goes way in the air…BAM! I was like Serena Williams,” Mimi tells her mother.

Serena continued her winning streak this week, beating older sister Venus in the quarterfinals of the US Open Tuesday night.

“She’s the toughest player I’ve ever played in my life, and the best person I know,” Serena said of her sister. “So it’s going against your best friend and at the same time for me going against the greatest competitor in women’s tennis. So it was really difficult today.”

Congrats are also in order for Mimi and her #BlackGirlMagic. JP Morgan has already invited Harris and her daughter to the US Open for a chance to meet her idol.
