Like, FOR SURE, we'd all love to be Serena Williams, but after an incredibly moving, affectionate and graceful speech after losing the Australian Open Championship to her little sister, Venus Williams just might be my new superhero.

On Saturday, Serena championed over Venus, beating her in straight sets to take home her 23rd Grand Slam title.

After the match and a long hug, Venus took the podium to thank God and her family and to praise Serena for all of her accomplishments and achievements.

Venus began, "Serena Williams. That's my little sister, guys," to enormous applause.

She continued,

UGH. VENUS. YOU BEAUTIFUL POET.

Following Venus, Serena was called to the podium as "the legendary Serena Williams," and echoed back her sister's sentiments of love and support.

She said,

I cried. You cried. We all cried.

The win gears Serena up to take the No. 1 ranking and gives her the Open Era record for career Grand Slams.
