As if dominating her sport wasn't enough, tennis superstar Serena Williams is also pretty good at fighting crime.

That much became clear Tuesday night.

Williams took to Facebook on Wednesday morning to share the story of an eventful dinner she had the previous night. While she was enjoying her dinner, her phone was swiped from a nearby chair. Instead of letting the thief get away with it, her "superhero" instincts kicked in.

The 34-year-old tennis legend jumped into action and chased down the thief, successfully retrieving her phone.

Here is video of the incident.
