Re: What are the religious inclinations of the top wta players?
There was an interview with Dementieva where someone asked her religion. She gave a very carefully moderated answer, something along the lines that everybody has beliefs that are important to them.
Elena being Elena, it's pretty hard to be sure what that means. It could be that she is an atheist or agnostic who respects that others may believe differently. She may be a deist or a Universalist who believes in a Supreme Being, but is not locked into a particular doctrine or traditional faith.
Or it could mean that she is a mainstream Orthodox Russian who was politely telling a reporter that her religious beliefs are none of his damn business.
Given her propensity for keeping her private life just that, I think it unlikely we'll ever know.
Myskina I know is the godmother of her coach's daughter, which would indicate to me that she is at least somewhat Orthodox--I can kind of see her as being, like so many, a "Christmas and Easter" member of the Orthodox Church, but that's just speculation.
Pass the duct tape and super glue. Lena's done broke my heart one last time.
