Busted! Tennis star Serena Williams catches phone thief


Busted! Tennis star Serena Williams catches phone thief

It seems acclaimed tennis star Serena Williams is not only tough on the court, but in real life as well.

While dining at a Chinese restaurant, Williams’ phone was snatched by a petty thief. Instead of being the proverbial damsel in distress, the 34-year-old leapt into action and proved that under her tennis uniform lays her superwoman costume.

The scene that followed reads like a chapter straight out of an action comic. She chased the thief down, subdued him and retrieved her phone.

After the incident, Williams narrated the whole story in a lengthy social media post both applauding herself and urging women to “not be a victim but a hero.”

 “Soooooo yesterday at dinner the CRAZIEST THING happened to me. I was sitting enjoying some Chinese food (delicious may I add) and this guy stands next to me. It was only 2 of us sitting at a 4 person table just chatting like we have not seen each other in years.” She said.

Anyways I digress, so 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. “Is he a customer?” I thought “Is he waiting on the bathroom?” nonetheless I tried to shake this eerie feeling.”

 “However, I kept watching him from the corner of my eye. Then when least expected low and behold this common petty thief grabbed my phone and swiftly left. I looked at the chair, then shouted, “Omg that dude took my phone!!” Not thinking I reacted (hence the superwoman photo) I jumped up, weaved my way in and out of the cozy restaurant (leaping over a chair or two) and chased him down.”The tennis star intimated

 “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. He stumbled on his words probably not expecting this to happen. While he was thinking of the right thing to say and eventually he said ‘Gosh you know what I did! It was so confused in there. I must have grabbed the wrong phone.’”

 “Meanwhile my phone was ringing, my superhero sidekick quail man was face timing me so he could not possibly deny the allegations. I swiftly thanked him and left.”

 “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.”

 “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! 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! Just because you are a lady don’t be afraid to step up to any challenge and not be a victim but a hero!” She urged.

 “SuperSerena and her sidekick quailman.” She added.

Who is this mysterious ‘quailman’? Could it be Alexis Ohanian or Drake?
