Re: What are the religious inclinations of the top wta players?

A more interesting question is what are the political leanings of the players?

Sharapova would be a conservative.
Petkovic would be a liberal.

A lot of them are from countries where you can disappear for saying the wrong thing so this is a pointless question

Sharapova may be conservative in her financial views but I don't see as a member of the Tea Party or anything.

I guess top players are neo-cons who want to keep their share of prize money but less tax, lower ranked players are liberals who call for a more equal distribution

I dont know what your definition of liberal is, but for German standards, Petkovic surely is not liberal.

Maria is Christian, given the crucifix? I'm assuming Orthodox but don't really know.

It looks like a Catholic cross though. Unless if it has a design like this and we can't see it:



Or she could be Orthodox and just wearing a catholic cross.

Are there a lot of Catholics in Russia? I don't think so. She has to be Orthodox.

Petkovic has said she upports the social democrats.
But liberal is a very contested sphere.

Sorry, misread Sam's post

Anyway, Sharapova's cross does look Orthodox for me
