Re: Marat's Tatar ethnicity?

I don't have enough knowledge but as far as i know, Tatars are known as a Turkic ethnic group. At least in Turkey, Tatar means being Turkic.

Tatar language has a lot of similarities with Turkish. For example, Murat and Dilara are very common names so Marat and Dinara get attention here because of their names. The people, who don't have interest in tennis, always ask me if they are Turkish.

His mother Rausa is Tatar too. (Rausa is tatar name, not russian).
He is from "Volga tatars" (Kazan).

Marat's Tatar ethnicity?

I know he's Tatar (his father is but Rausa is Russian, right?), but it just came to me that 'Tatar' has a very loose meaning. What kind of Tatar ancestry does he have, exactly? Volga Tatar residing in Kazan? Turkic?

See this link.

Thanks in advance.
