Sometimes, the combination of YouTube and little children is simply irresistible. Now, “David After Dentist,” “Hey Jude” and “Charlie bit my Finger” might need to make some room — because viewers on the video-sharing site are falling in love with an enthusiastic 3-year-old fan of Serena Williams.
Little Mykal-Michelle is a huge admirer of the tennis great, currently ranked No. 1 in the sport. According to ESPN, the girl’s mother Kimberly Harris shared the video on Facebook after receiving the Aug. 31 issue of Sports Illustrated with Williams on the cover. Mykal-Michelle was so thrilled to see her hero in the magazine that she launched into an impromptu breakdown of her own tennis skills.
“I was like Serena Williams!” the little girl says over and over again, enthusiastically telling a story about playing tennis with her dad.
Making the story even better, the 21-time Grand Slam Champion herself has seen the video and is apparently as big a fan of Mykal-Michelle as the little girl is of Serena Williams. She has shared the video on her Facebook page, a move that has garnered more than 11,000 likes.
