This is what happens when you steal Serena Williams’ phone.

In one of the most bada** stories ever told, the 34-year-old tennis champ took to Facebook to reveal how she channeled her inner superhero to chase down a man who attempted to steal her phone during a Tuesday night dinner.

“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,” she wrote. “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.”

So naturally, she kept an eye on the bizarre man: “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!!'”

And while most would scream for help, Williams put on her superhero cape and chased the man down. She revealed, “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. He began to run but I was too fast. (Those sprints came in handy) I was upon him in a flash!”

When she caught up to him, she said, “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… Eventually, he said, ‘Gosh you know what I did! It was so confusing in there. I must have grabbed the wrong phone.'”

To her surprise, the GOAT was greeted with a standing ovation upon her return to the restaurant. “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,” she gushed. “I was proud. I just showed every man in there I can stand up to bullies and other men. It was a win for the ladies!” She adds some advice for her fellow baddies: “Just because you are a lady don’t be afraid to step up to any challenge and not be a victim but a hero!”
