My special friend in which I got at 17 (2 weeks before I won my very first Grand Slam) left me today,” the 34-year-old tennis star wrote on Instagram. “She was 16 years young and up until a few days ago was still sprinting.

She was with me from 1999 until today and I miss her so much.”

“I got out of the shower this afternoon and she was not there to lick my leg as she always did everyday to remind me how much she loved me. I feel so lucky to have such a special friend. Give your dog, cat, pet a big hug. #breakingheart #bff Jackie Baila Pete Williams I will miss you and your memory will live forever,” Serena added.

Serena Williams Channels Her Inner Superhero to Save Her Phone in an Epic Way

Serena Williams took to her Facebook on on Wednesday (November 4) to tell fans a story of her dinner the night before where her phone was stolen!

“Soooooo yesterday at dinner the CRAZIEST THING happened to me….when least expected low and behold this common petty thief grabbed my phone and swiftly left…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,” the 34-year-old tennis pro wrote.

“He began to run but I was too fast. (Those sprints came in handy) I was upon him in a flash! 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. While he was thinking of the right thing to say and eventually he said ‘Gosh you know what I did! It was so confusing in there. I must have grabbed the wrong phone,’” Serena continued.

“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. Always listen to your superhero inner voice. Always keep your things close! Fight for what’s right. Stand for what you believe in! Be a superhero! Just because you are a lady don’t be afraid to step up to any challenge and not be a victim but a hero!,” Serena added.

At the end, Serena tagged Caroline Wozniaki, presumably her dinner companion (and sidekick on her mission!).

Serena Williams Tackles Race, Gender, & Equality Issues in 'Wired'

Serena Williams guest edits and takes the cover of Wired magazine’s November 2015 issue, which explores the issues of race, gender, and equality in the digital age.

Here’s what the 34-year-old tennis star had to share with the mag:

On being a role model as a tennis player:
“I’m a black woman, and I am in a sport that wasn’t really meant for black people. I want young people to look at the trailblazers that we have assembled [in this issue] and be inspired.”

On staying positive: “Back in 2008, when I was competing in the US Open, I would keep little “matchbooks,” where I’d write affirmations to myself and read them during matches. It worked pretty well. But before long I found an even better way to inspire myself: I started using affirmations as the passwords to my phone and my computer. (No, I’m not going to tell you what my current affirmation is!) You should try it. You’ll be surprised how many times a day you log in and have an opportunity to trigger the positivity. I love that I can use technology that way.”
