    Did I understand this correctly? Safin wants to oversee a joint Russian/Serbian tennis program?

    russia and serbia are neighbours??I need to upgrade my map.
    I'm not sure how they can do a serbian-russian collaboration ~under one flag~ as Marat said.:confused: ..or what exactly they're working on.A tournament,an academy?:confused:

    I had heard before some confusing info about Marat getting into olympic comittee then resigning..but here it says that he's the president of the asistant comitee only yet.

    Neighbors in the sense that their roots are very much similar.
    Also, I'm sure Safin's geographical knowledge barely exceeds the level of a 3rd grade pupil.

    Well for a long time now Serbia and Russia have been keeping ties. If I recall correctly they each have embassies in major cities of the other one and constantly have high ranking political officials visit one another. So it doesn't seem like a stretch, but what exactly Marat wants to do? Well that makes no sense.

    I'll give you a short comprehensive version of it:

    Marat: "I don't know what I'm doing, they put me vice-president in some comitee over in Russia, and they told me I'm gonna get some Olympics media coverage with it"
