Safina was a muslim? I didn't know that.

The Radwanska sisters are both devout practicing Catholics.
Every Polish or Polish-origin player is more or less Catholic. I don't think we have much choice here....

My friend is from Serbia & said both are Serbian Orthodox, once rumored to belong to the church where Serbian Orthodox priests blessed war criminals like Ratko Mladic & the same priests were also accused of sex abuse cover-up ...if true, this can't get any more pathetic for Anna & JJ

Are you sure? Because I wouldn't be surprised if, for instance, Lisicki belonged to Lutheran Church. After all her father has some German roots. I just speculate here, but it's not like 100% Poles are Catholic. We even had a Lutheran prime-minister, remember?

I know only of Agnieszka declaring herself as a practicing Catholic:

You have a choice: Polish Catholic or Roman Catholic.

Her whole family are ethnic Tartars, and Tartars are mostly muslims. But I've never heard of anything about Marat on this subject, maybe he's not as religious as sis, and Dinara actually has more typical facial features of a tartar than her bro IMO.

Yes, practically. She comes from a region that is mostly Muslim. But once she was asked about it, she said she doesnt feel like a Muslim at all, but as every other Russian first .
