Serena Williams graces the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated
Thursday September 10th, 2015

It’s hard to think of a better role model for a young girl than Serena Williams, who is currently laying waste to every opponent she faces. This little girl wants to be just like her, and she’s already nailed Serena’s expression from her Sports Illustrated cover

No explanation needed. #serenawilliams #likeserenawilliams #kimraisingkim

Unfortunately for this young Serena fan, she’ll have to wait an extra day to see Williams take the next step toward a possible calendar Grand Slam. Rain forced the U.S. Open to postpone Thursday’s semifinals to Friday morning. 

UPDATE

The young girl’s spot-on imitation earned her a pair of tickets to the Open from Serena herself. 

The package arrives!I'm going to the U.S Open????? #usopen #jpmorgan #chasebank #kimraisingkim #likeialwayssay
