Serena Williams defeated Simona Halep in the Australian Open on Tuesday, and will advance to face Naomi Osaka in the semifinals.

Williams' husband, Alexis Ohanian (one of the co-founders of Reddit who has been married to Williams since 2017) supported her from the sidelines wearing a shirt that read "Greatest Female Athlete," with "Female" crossed off, next to a picture of his wife.

Ohanian appeared to be responding to a debate that refused to recognize Williams as one of the greatest athletes of all time, after her 23 Grand Slam titles were compared to Tom Brady's Super Bowl victories.

Ohanian also appeared to be reacting to Ion Tiriac, the director of the Madrid Open, when he suggested Williams should retire because of her age and her weight.

People were immediately fans of the shirt and of Ohanian's support of Williams.

People are already asking where they can get their own copy of the shirt.

This most recent win against Simona Halep, a 6-3, 6-3 victory, puts Williams just a few more matches away from securing her 24th Grand Slam title.

Williams earning a 24th Grand Slam title would tie her with Margaret Court, the current record-holder for most Grand Slam singles titles.

Osaka and Williams' fourth match ever is the semifinal match coming up on Thursday. Rooting for you, Serena.
