Burglars hit tennis star Venus Williams’ Florida home, stealing $400,000 worth of goods while she was at the U.S. Open.
Palm Beach Gardens police released a report Thursday about the burglary, which happened between Sept. 1 and 5. Just two days later on September 7 the 37-year-old tennis legend suffered heartbreak when she lost in three sets to eventual champion Sloane Stevens in the semi-finals.
The ladies battled it out for an impressive two hours and seven minutes, but the much younger player was eventually able to overcome the seven times grand slam singles champion.
On the positive side she raked a substantial $920,000 in prize money, more than double what she lost in the burglary.
