Serena Williams’s husband, Alexis Ohanian, just proved that he’s her number one fan.

The professional tennis player, 39, recently posted a new photo on Instagram, featuring herself rocking a one-piece swimsuit. And Ohanian couldn’t help but gush over the steamy picture in the comments section.

In the photo, Williams is standing in front of a beachside pool. The athlete is wearing a gorgeous blue snakeskin swimsuit, which has just enough coverage. The outfit is complete with a matching coverup, though Williams is using it as a cape instead. Unfortunately, we don’t know the exact brand of the bathing suit, but there’s a similar version available for purchase at Amazon for $19.

She captioned the post, “Summer blues.” (Get it?) She even credited her team, which included makeup artist Natasha Gross, hairstylist Angela Meadows and professional photographer Ronald Wayne.

It didn’t take long for Ohanian to respond to Williams’s post with a simple flirty message: “Damn.” The comment has already received more than 2,300 (and counting) likes.

Ohanian wasn’t the only person to pen a supportive note to Williams. One follower wrote, “Beautiful [heart emoji] Gorgeous [heart-eye emoji] Stunning [fire emoji].” Someone even said what we’re all thinking: “[Goat emoji] of women’s tennis.”

This isn’t the first time Williams has documented her personal style on social media. Earlier this week, the tennis player posted another outfit shot on Instagram, which was styled by the same glam team. The photo shows Williams wearing a brown tank top tucked into a flattering leather skirt. The real showstoppers are her studded heels, which could practically double as weapons.

Keep the flirty comments coming, Alexis.
