A 3-year-old's adorable moment of admiration for Serena Williams has landed her a trip to the U.S. Open.



In a video her mom posted to Facebook, young Mimi says that she's "like Serena Williams" on the tennis court. She holds up a magazine cover of the superstar as she speaks, doing her best game face every time she says Williams' name.

Little Mykal-Michelle (aka Mimi) was an instant hit. The video has been seen by more than a million people on her mom's Facebook page, including the folks at J.P. Morgan Chase. They sent the girl tickets to the U.S. Open to meet Serena, who is playing to make history.


Mimi appeared on Good Morning America on her way to the tournament in New York City to wish her idol good luck.

When asked if she could beat Serena in a match, Mimi told GMA she could beat her, but the best outcome would be "If we both win."
