He is in Nabarezhnye Chelny, Tatarstan for opening a brand new tennis site according to world standards He said few words to thank the sponsors and everybody involved in the project. Marat also said that it is good the city is promoting healthy life style and sport. He patiently signed autographs, tried the Tatar national dish chak-chak and signed a ball and a racket Tomorrow he will visit Sabantuy (a Tatar fest) on city's main square.

Sigh. OK, thank you. I'm not sure I want to hear this but tell me anyway - what goes on at Tatar festivals? Limbo-dancing? Yards-of-ale?

Quote:
The main distinctive elements of Sabantuy include the traditional sporting competitions such as köräş (Tatar wrestling), horse racing, race-in-sack, pillar-climbing, egg-in-spoon-in-mouth-racing, sacks-battle on the crossbar, pots crashing [2], finding a coin in a qatıq (a beverage made from sour milk), and other contests. Such activities take place on the mäydan[1], which would usually be located at the edge of a forest.

here's what wikipedia says:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabantuy

The Russian version is more detailed and has one more pic of the typical games:

I scanned the page very quick - it's mostly games for the kids nowadays.

Thanks guys, I feel much better now, knowing the exact ways Marat will do himself in today. Pillar-climbing, sacks-battle on the crossbar (sounds like a crowd-pleaser ), and this, whoa! http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Файл:Koeraesh.jpg.

If he's gonna skive the grass season, let him at least win the egg-in-spoon-in-mouth race. That's something I'd trade my (imaginary) centre court tickets to see!

winning a sackrace would be nice too they'd need an extra long sack to fit his legs though

He looks like an undercover James Bond trying to blend in with the locals.
