You may not be familiar with Naomi Osaka, but she’s the 20-year-old Haitian-Japanese woman who will come face-to-face with Serena Williams at this weekend’s U.S. Open final. And like all of us, Osaka is probably one of Williams’ biggest fans ever.

Thursday night, both Williams and Osaka won their semi-final matches, and even before Osaka’s win, she stated she would love to play against Williams.

Shortly after Osaka’s winning match, she left another sweet message for her idol.

You can watch all of the black girl tennis magic unfold Saturday at 4 p.m. at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York.
