DeGeneres sent Osaka, who turned 21 on Tuesday, a birthday pic of a almost nude Jordan earlier this week.

Jordan seems to have asked Naomi Osaka out and it's all because of Ellen DeGeneres!

Seeing the very public post, Jordan, 31, made a decision to one-up DeGeneres with another shirtless shot.

Even though the US Open champion might have felt embarrassed, Jordan was flattered and fuelled Osaka's crush on him by sending a more recent photo of himself. DeGeneres apparently texted the Black Panther actor a selfie of herself and Osaka, and Jordan responded with a video. Because public thirst is always embarrassing, Osaka was quick to jokingly reply, "pls block me".

"I wanted to send my love and support and just say congratulations", Jordan says to Osaka in the clip. If nothing else, they can laugh about the fact that DeGeneres is responsible for putting all of this in place.

Osaka sat there blushing and couldn't believe what was happening.

Osaka told about her crush on Ellen Show earlier in September and DeGeneres has been trying to set them up ever since then. "Thanks for the bday wishes, If you're serious I would totally want to go", she wrote.

A surprised Osaka, who couldn't hide her delight, tweeted back: 'LOL what is going on???
