“Awwwww mannnnnn I asked you to save this post until I was next to her side my side in my same outfit,” Williams wrote in the comments.
While standing on a tennis court, the 3-year-old can be seen posing and making similar facial expressions and arm movements as Williams while holding a tennis racket. Her hair is pulled up into two high buns accessorized with matching hot pink fuzz balls.
The 3-year-old’s one-legged unitard design is similar to the one the Williams previously wore at this year’s Australian Open as an homage to late Florence Griffith-Joyner, also known as Flo-Jo, as Blavity previously reported.
Two legends in a league of their own. The late “Flo Jo” and #SerenaWilliams paying tribute to Florence Griffith Joyner’s distinctive style. See for yourself at the #AustralianOpen on now. https://t.co/sd2fPPvNtP via @NBCOlympicTalk

The track and field star was famous for sporting the one-legged unitards for her races. Williams even previously said the woman’s athleticism was a big influence on her professional career growing up, according to Harper’s Bazaar.
“I was inspired by Flo-Jo, who was a wonderful track athlete, amazing athlete when I was growing up,” Williams said earlier this year. “Watching her fashion, just always changing, her outfits were always amazing.”
Williams, who holds 23 Grand Slam titles under her belt, recently spoke out to show her support for tennis star Naomi Osaka who announced she was stepping out of this year’s French Open to focus on her mental health. Williams acknowledged Osaka’s struggles, saying she understood the pressure.
