Serena Williams had a special gift waiting for her Saturday after capturing her record 23rd Grand Slam singles title at the Australian Open.

While on set with ESPN, Williams was presented with two pairs of custom Jordan sneakers, along with a note from Michael Jordan himself.

Winning is hard. It takes years of hard work, mental toughness, and a willingness to accept the fact that you hate to lose. Congratulations with much respect on winning number 23. It would be a privilege to keep watching your determination on the court.

Your friend,
Michael Jordan
