Washington: American tennis player Venus Williams has become the latest celebrity victim of burglary as she was robbed of whopping 400,000 dollars in property while she was playing in the US Open.

Confirming the news, Palm Beach Gardens Police Department said that the burglary took place between September 1 and 5 at Williams's 10,000-square-feet home, TMZ reported.

Though Venus's home was broken during the raid, it is still unclear how the burglars got into the property and what all items were stolen.

Just few days after the robbery, the 37-year-old suffered another heartbreak as she slumped to a three-set defeat at the hands of eventual champion Sloane Stephens in the semifinals of the US Open.

On a positive note, she earned a whopping $920,000 in prize money, more than double of what she lost in the robbery.
