One thief got more than he bargained for when he tried to snatch Queen Serena Williams’ iPhone Tuesday evening.

While the tennis star was having dinner with a friend, her “superhero sense” kicked in when she noticed a man lurking near her table.

“Soooooo yesterday at dinner the CRAZIEST THING happened to me,” Williams wrote on Facebook. “This guy is standing next to me and 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.”

As Williams tried to figure out why the man was standing close to her table, he grabbed her phone and dashed out of the restaurant.

That’s when Williams sprung into action.

“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!” Williams explained. “In the most menacing yet calm no nonsense voice I could muster I kindly asked him if he ‘accidentally’ took the wrong phone.”

Startled by Williams’ reaction, the man tried to pretend that he hadn’t stolen her phone, but rather picked it up by mistake.

You believe this guy? Nah…

When Williams returned to the restaurant she received a standing ovation, more proof, as Williams put it, she has “the speed, the jumps, the power, the body, the seduction, the sex appeal, the strength, [and] the leadership” to be a hero.

Williams recovered her property and used the experience to share some awesome advice for her fans: listen to your intuition.

“Always listen to your superhero inner voice. Always keep your things close! Fight for what’s right. Stand for what you believe in! Be a superhero!”

We hear your Queen Serena, we hear you.

  • Sister Serena Williams is a hero. A thief stole her phone and she retrieved it. She can stand up for herself and she knows how to fight against evil. She is not just a great athlete with great beauty inside and out. She is also a role model for so many girls and women in the world who are working in jobs, participating in sports, or helping others in charities. Serena Williams’ gift include her qualities of strength, courage, and perseverance. Her parents are proud of her and her Sister is an amazing woman in her own right as well. No one should sleep on Sister Venus Williams. Serena and Venus are Sisters who are part of a great family.

    Bless Queen Serena.
