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.

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.
