Need one last little boost to make it through Friday? Look no further than an exceptional Instagram post from Serena Williams, in which she and daughter Olympia play tennis in matching purple unitards. Yes, it's overwhelmingly cute! Yes, you might cry a little! This is the level of high-quality Instagram content we've come to expect from the GOAT!

Williams shared three photos from the tennis court, in which Olympia holds her racket like a pro and mirrors her mom's stance. (Yes, I'm thinking what you're thinking: these are future doubles champions in the making.) In a video at the end of the post, the mom and daughter high-five, before Olympia drops her racket as she walks off the court. Sister and aunt Venus Williams was completely overwhelmed by the post, commenting, "I just love her and you too much! If this gets any cuter I will NOT LIVE!" Agreed, Venus!

n May, Serena posted an equally sweet mother-daughter video (opens in new tab), in which the pair wear matching pyjamas and Olympia copies her mom's skincare routine (opens in new tab). "Morning y’all!" Serena says, as she cleanses her face and Olympia mirrors her technique. "We’re doing our morning routine, and it’s just so fun because this little baby girl pretty much does everything I do." Truly, what did we do to deserve this much adorable content?
