J.K. Rowling can cast a spell on anyone by using her magical words.

She certainly did that on a Twitter user Saturday who was criticizing six-time Wimbledon champion Serena William’s body after she won the championship.

The author of famous fantasy novel series “Harry Potter” turned out to be a big admirer of the queen of tennis Serena Williams, who was making her 25th grand slam final appearance on Saturday. Rowling was supporting Serena for the match. She even posted a picture of herself with Serena Williams saying, “I’m Team Serena today, because you don’t meet many super talented people nicer than she is. Go Serena Williams.”

Rowling continued to cheer for her favorite tennis throughout the final and at the end.

 “I love her. What an athlete, what a role model, what a woman.”

One of the Twitter followers by the name of “Rob” used harsh words about Serena’s body, which made Rowling furious and forced her to react angrily.

“Ironic then that main reason for her success is that she is built like a man.” The user wrote to Rowling.

“‘She is built like a man.’ Yeah, my husband looks just like this in a dress. You’re an idiot.” Rowling fired back on the user, who making mock of Serena.

The 34-year old Serena Williams won her 21th grand slam singles title on Saturday, beating Spain’s Garbine Muguruza in straight sets. The 21-year old Spaniard reached her first grand slam final. It was Serena’s 6th Wimbledon final win, making her the oldest to win a grand slam in Open era. She is also one shy of matching the all-time record of Steffi Graf, who won 7 Wimbledon and 22 grand slams overall.
