The most incredible part of this story is that there’s someone out there stupid enough to try to steal Serena Williams’ cell phone.

The tennis superstar, who is basically the closest thing we have to a real-life Olympic God, took to Facebook to reveal “CRAZIEST THING” that happened to her. And it is indeed insane.

“I was sitting enjoying some Chinese food (delicious may I add) and this guy stands next to me,” Serena writes. “Something (I have now dubbed it my SUPERHERO sense) told me to watch him. My phone was sitting in the chair but I just didn't feel right. He was there too long.”

She says she tried to shake the “eerie” feeling, but explains, “I kept watching him from the corner of my eye. Than when least expected low and behold this common petty thief grabbed my phone and swiftly left. I looked at the chair, than shouted ‘Omg that dude took my phone!!’”

“Not thinking I reacted,” she recalls. “I jumped up, weaved my way in and out of the cozy restaurant (leaping over a chair or two) and chased him down. He began to run but I was too fast. (Those sprints came in handy) I was upon him in a flash!”


“In the most menacing yet calm no nonsense voice I could muster I kindly asked him if he ‘accidentally’ took the wrong phone,” she notes. “Eventually he said ‘Gosh you know what I did! It was so confusing in there. I must have grabbed the wrong phone.’”

Honestly, he’s lucky he didn’t get his ass whooped. Because she could’ve.

And Serena was clearly feeling herself afterwards, as she should. “Superhero? Maybe? Or HELL YEA!! I've got the speed the jumps, the power, the body, the seduction, the sex appeal, the strength, the leadership and yet the calm to weather the storm,” the 34-year-old athlete writes.

“Just because you are a lady don't be afraid to step up to any challenge and not be a victim but a hero!” Serena concludes. “When I got back into the restaurant I received a standing ovation. I was proud. I just showed every man in there I can stand up to bully's and other men. It was a win for the ladies!”

Honestly, Serena should get a standing ovation when she walks into any room.
