The phenomenal film “Eat. Pray, Love” which had been released recently has spread the positive vibration to the world community especially about Bali. Many foreigners then came to Bali to feel the same what Gilbert felt. And the competitors of tennis tournament in the “Commonwealth Bank Tournament Of Championship 2010” WTA seems inspired by Gilbert’s work.

Before facing her match against Yanima Wickmayer, Daniele Hantuchova, a Slovenian player, prayed a la Hindu in Taman Sari Temple, Grand Hyatt Bali. This is the first time for her to pray in a  Hindu temple. Wearing a white traditional Balinese costume, she admitted that after praying she could feel what she saw on the film “Eat, Pray, Love”. She felt peaceful during the procession. However this beautiful tennis player didn’t want to reveal what she prayed for.

Hantuchova was not alone on that time. She prayed with other tennis players such as Angelique Widjaja; ex-Indonesian tennis player, and Kimiko-Date Krumm; Japanese tennis player. On the opposite of Hantuchova who preferred keeping her pray, Kimiko tried to be open. She said that on her first time pray ala Hindu she prayed for her career, health, and the upcoming match on WTA.

Apart from that, Kimiko expressed her opinion on the different way people pray. “In my country the way people pray is different from people in Bali but I think the essence is the same” Kimiko explained.
