Venus Williams has had a tough couple of months.

In July, the tennis star was slapped with a wrongful death lawsuit by the family of a man killed in a Palm Beach Gardens car crash for which she was found at fault.

Then her house was broken into a few months later, in September, while the 37-year-old was competing at the U.S. Open., according to an announcement by Palm Beach Gardens police on Thursday. The burglary was reported on Sept. 5, according to the report.

TMZ reports that thieves made off with 16 designer handbags.

A source tells the gossip site that personal items, as well as jewelry, were nicked. About $400,000 worth of goods were taken.

No arrests have been made.

Palm Beach County property records show Williams and her younger sister Serena (who just got married in New Orleans) bought the home in BallenIsles Country Club new in 2000. It is now valued at $2.3 million.
