Serena Williams Religion
Williams was raised in a family of Jehovah’s Witnesses but says she never really delved into practicing this religion. It is known, however, that when she wins a match, she usually thanks Jehovah.
Serena Williams Political Views
Due to being a Jehovah’s Witness, a religion that kind of forbids involvement with politics, Serena is non-political, even though she once stated that she would vote for Barack Obama, which would grant her an inclination towards the Democratic Party.
But then again, she cannot vote for anyone, so it’s safe to say that she is utterly non-political.
