During the Australian Open semifinals, Alexis Ohanian supported his wife by wearing a t-shirt that had a photo of her and the phrase the "Greatest Female Athlete."

The word "female" has been scratched out as a way to criticize critics who have downplayed Williams's achievements, especially in comparison to male athletes who are less dominant in their sport.

Ohanian has been outspoken about his support for his wife and is regularly seen with their daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., on the sidelines at her games.

Besides the Nike t-shirt, he is vocal about supporting his wife. He wrote an op-ed for Glamour and spoke about how important it was to show up for his wife.

In fact, her father, Richard Williams, faced racism when watching the Indian Wells final in 2001.

Ohanian and Williams got engaged in 2016. A year later, they welcomed their adorable little girl. The toddler makes regular appearances on both her mom and dad's Instagram accounts.

Ohanian had shared that he wants to make the world better, along with Williams, who had made a significant impact in the tennis world for people of color as it was a predominantly white sport when she started.

Her father, Richard Williams, faced racism when watching the Indian Wells final in 2001. Fans had booed him and his daughter, Venus, as they made their way to their seats. Richard claimed it was an act of racial abuse.

Ohanian has tried to help the black community in his own way. The co-founder of Reddit asked his colleges to replaced him with a person of color when he stepped down from his role in the company.
