Tamarine Tanasugarn is also religious. Her biography says that she attended Mater Dei School since KG until 9th grade.
Wynne Prakusia is also religious. In Los Angeles, instead of waiting for the outcome of the LL issue when Kournikova was to pull out, she went to church on Sunday morning as usual . When she came back from church, she learnt she was the LL!! <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> and that she would be playing.
I believe Tara Snyder and Chanda Rubin. I recall reading a bio on Tara that said that God was the most important thing in her life and her interests were Bible Study and the like. I *think* there was a Chanda bio that said something about Christ being very important in her life as well. If they believe enough to put it in a tennis bio, they must be really into it. I am positive about Tara, not so positive about Chanda.
When u say religious do u mean mention the name of their god, go to church or live a religious lifestyle? I find a lot of people go to church and mention the name of god often but live the life of the average sinner. Of all the things I've heard about players it seems Chandra Rubin lives her beliefs often.

Given that most people have some form of religious belief, (or at least my almanac indicates that) I'd assume most tennis players do as well.
What tennis does not have is a 'God Squad'.
If professional American football and basketball,players frequently gather together to pray before games, and a certain number alewasy thank God first and foremost when interviewed. I'm totally down with this actually. People expressing their beliefs in a positive maner is pretty much always cool.
I'm not sure how that would play in tennis though.
