Here’s Proof That Serena Williams Is a Real-Life Superhero

Super Serena to the Rescue.

Serena Williams is a person of many talents. She’s arguably one of the world’s best athletes. She’s a fashion designer. She may or may not have caught the attention of Drake this past summer. Now, she can add superhero to that impressive list.

Earlier today, Serena took to Facebook to recall a recent encounter with a phone thief. According to her post, the 34-year-old tennis great was having Chinese food (“delicious may I add”) with sister Venus and BFF Caroline Wozniacki when a stranger decided to put his life at risk, a.k.a. steal from a world class athlete.

Serena says she just knew the guy was up to no good when he stood near her for way too long. Then, he grabbed the device.

“Not thinking I reacted… 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!”

After kindly asking the thief if he “accidentally” took the wrong phone (he didn’t) and subsequently getting it back, Serena thanked him and went back to a standing ovation at the restaurant.

“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.”

You got all that? Those are all the necessary ingredients in your journey to becoming America’s next superhero. For now, the world can safely rely on the powers of Super Serena.
