The Daily Grind Video

UPDATE: Thursday, November 5th

Thanks to Good Morning America, we now have footage of Serena tracking down her would-be phone thief. From the looks of it, he gave up Serena’s phone without much of a fight.

Underneath Serena Williams‘ tennis gear is a Superwoman uniform. And the tennis champion found herself in the aforementioned superhero mode when a petty thief attempted to steal her phone while she was dining alone at a restaurant.

In a lengthy Instagram post, Serena details the encounter and how she took the situation into her own hands while encouraging women to follow their instincts and “not be a victim but a hero.”

“I jumped up, weaved my way in and out of the cozy restaurant (leaping over a chair or two) and chased him down,” she explained. “He began to run but I was too fast. (Those sprints came in handy) I was upon him in a flash!”

She added:

“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.”
