This Adorable 3-Year-Old Girl Is Serena Williams' Biggest Fan

And she's finally going to meet her idol this week.

Serena Williams is arguably the greatest athlete in America.

Her fans include Michelle Obama, Drake, poet-oracle Claudia Rankine, and just about everyone who appreciates the magnificence of athletics.

Wow! Huge congrats to @SerenaWilliams for her win at Wimbledon. We're all so proud of you! -mo

But her most adorable fan is a 3-year-old girl named Mimi Harris, whose mother uploaded this heart-wearming video to Facebook last week.

Mimi compares her own tennis skills to Serena's: "I shoot it way up in the air, and I was like Serena Williams!"

And now the pint-sized future Wimbledon competitor will get the chance to meet her inspiration. After the video went viral, JP Morgan Chase offered to fly Harris and her mother to New York to see Serena in person at her match against Roberta Vinci.

Well, Serena saw her. And she's going to the US Open. #LikeSerenaWilliams #BlackGirlMagic

The Sept. 10 match was postponed, so Mimi may meet Serena at the rescheduled match Friday.

Asked if she had any advice for Serena, Mimi told "Good Morning America" simply, "If I play I can win."

Looks like Serena might finally have some real competition.
