San Francisco: Serena Williams is known for her athleticism on court but the tennis ace proved to be quite a ‘superwoman’ off it as well when she chased down a man on Friday who she said took her phone while she ate at a restaurant. 
 
Williams, 34, the top-ranked tennis player in women’s singles, posted a picture of herself in a superhero outfit on Facebook and described a dramatic ordeal that she said took place at a Chinese restaurant, where a man stood next to her and lingered a bit too close to her table for comfort. 
 
Though, surveillance video suggests the encounter was not as dramatic as Williams’s widely shared tale on Facebook yet she did chase down the alleged phone thief.
 
“My phone was sitting in the chair but I just didn’t feel right. He (the alleged thief) was there too long. ‘Is he a customer?’ I thought. ‘Is he waiting on the bathroom?’” she wrote. 
 
Williams said her “superhero sense” proved correct when the man grabbed her phone and ducked out of the restaurant. “He began to run but I was too fast. (Those sprints came in handy) I was upon him in a flash!” Serena said. There were few details about the episode from her Facebook post. Williams did not say what city she was in, what type of phone she had or the identity of her dinner companion. Surveillance footage broadcast by “Good Morning America” show on Thursday offered more information.
