Where were you on Sunday night? If the answer isn’t the Dolores Park tennis courts, you’re about to be filled with regret and a touch of envy. While on an evening stroll with her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, Serena Williams spotted two men playing tennis and wanted in. So she casually asked to play the winner. The response was appropriate and what any of us would say: “Oh, my goodness! Is this for real? What?!? Yes please! Holy crap!”

Thankfully for us, Ohanian filmed the whole exchange for Serena’s Snapchat. Watch it all unfold:
