There is a whole thread for this, with over a 1000 posts and still being updated. They also discussed Jola in it too

Because as I've said numerous posters have expressed their disdain for religion (which is their right) and their belief that religious people were beneath them intellectually and were the causes of all the ills of this world. Now change the wording. What If a posters in a GM thread expressed their disdain for homosexuality using the same words. And did not stop there but said they beleived homosexuals were all sick deviants and beneath them intellectually and spiritually. And still did not stop there but said homosexuals were the cause for all the ills of the world, especially the AIDS plague. You see how fucked up and awfully bad that sounds. How awfully ignorant and completely evil it sounds? How hurtful it is? So, if you see this persecution of homosexuality wrong, (AND IT IS WRONG), and you won't allow it then don't allow it in this situation with respect to a players or person's religious choice, simply because you have your own hang ups with religion. Remove it or close it.

@Grininel Orthodox Christians mark. Also when they pass near a church they make their cross. It's a sign of confessing their faith and be closer to god.

Update? I know Halep and many Russians like Gasparyan, Blinkova cross themselves after matches. Familiar scenes as I was compelled to go to Cath church when I was little.
I wonder if there are any known Buddhists, Scientolgists, Gnostics, Satanists or else.

Kvitova is stupid, so I presume she is religious.

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

It's funny because I find Chrisian athletes so inspiring (as a Christian myself). It's the reason Tim Tebow is my favorite athlete in the history of sports!

I'm very liberal but I also have a lot of faith in God & Jesus. So when a tennis player says "thank you God" I understand where they're coming from. It isn't saying that God had something to do with the results, but that he allowed that person to live & be part of a great moment. As well as knowing all the hard work paid off. It's like an old Christian tale my mom use to say:

"A man was praying, and God responded you have to first help yourself before I can help you."


Also I don't see why any atheist would have an issue with a believers expression of faith. If there was an atheist sign or language I wouldn't care if he or she expressed it to the public. I guest I'm just very liberal and go by the rule live & let live. As a Chrisian myself I want to be able to spread my faith, & thank God for my all my blessings.

Also does anyone know what's Andy Murray belief? He always point at the sky when he wins a match.

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

Sabs has described herself as "a good Catholic girl" and claims she is a regular churchgoer, fwiw.
