Its interesting and all i can really tell you is that Dinara Safina is a muslim.. because there was talk of her struggling during ramadan last year..

None of us here can answer such a question.
You have to ask the players themselves.

I think Mary Pierce is a devout Christian.

I've heard that Safina is not really religious, Muslim family.

Same with the Williams sisters, Jehovah's Witnesses by family but not practicing.

(Am I right about all that?)

Many of them have spoken about their religion at one time or another.

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

Maria very often wears a cross.Is she a devout Christian?What about juju and momo?Are there any players who regularly pray on court?I mean , there are many soccer players who make the sign of the cross, or kneel down after they have scored a goal.So are there any wta players who regularly thank God after match victories?Is anabel medina a muslim or a christian?Are nadia and kuzzie nonbelievers?I think that religion still plays a very important role in our 21st century world so there is no harm in talking about the religious interests of top players.

Does it matter what religion they are? Not everyone believes in a religion these days...

I guess we share the same belief or lack of .

But to answer the question I believe Amelie does not have one. Elena does not look like the religious type so is Sveta. I think Myskina has a religion or maybe that cross she sometimes wear is for show. Francesca I believe is Catholic just like any ordinary Italian woman.

Out of mild curiosity, what exactly does 'the religious type' look like??

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

I've wondered about V&S. I know that they are jehovah's witnesses but I'm not sure how devout they are in terms of how closely they follow the rules of a Jehovah's witness. I thought Jehovah's witness were not allowed to have surgery or drink. And i'm pretty sure the WS have done both. But I could be wrong. Just curious.

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

It's odd. In American basketball and football, you hear players thanking 'My lord and saviour Jesus Christ' in every other interview. In golf, tennis, baseball, and hockey, you rarely hear that.

I almost want to remove American football from the equation, because it's both violent and personal. (Running into a brick wall at 300 kph is violent, but it isn't personal. The wall doesn't care.)

I have no idea what the religious affiliations of the players are. Europe, taken as a whole, is reputed, in America, to be much more secular than the USA. Since tennis is dominated by Europeans, maybe that's why we don't hear more about religion. But American players don't make much mention of it either.

I'm fairly certain that Shahar Peer is Jewish . Whether she's devout or not I don't know.
