The Expekt.com affiliate team reporting back from London Affiliate Conference (LAC)

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

Yesterday Scotty arrived to London to attend the London Affiliate Conference (LAC) with Expekt.com. The LAC isn’t the only thing though as the visit started with a dinner and Fire&Ice party.


At the dinner we had the chance to enjoy Scotty showing us few magic tricks and we really found out that even though he’s an old school player he still got few new tricks up to his sleeves.


After the dinner we arrived to the party where we had our own VIP booth. Our photographer joined as well and managed to get some great pictures from Scotty and the rest of the gang. After few hours it was time to get back to the hotel, get the last drink and prepare for the new day.



Will Andy Murray win his first Grand Slam in Australian Open?

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

My English colleague Jonathan Deeley feels like a true Scotsman these days. He is not alone in Britain. When red-hot Scot Andy Murray is on fire, he brings all Britain together as a long-time suffering patient who has been without tennis treats forever and who suddenly sees the light and glorious candy.


I’ve been at Wimbledon a couple of times when Tim Henman did all his best to silence the critics and conquer SW19, but he never really made it poor Tim.


Murray, 22, reached the US Open final in 2008 and on Sunday he will be back in a Grand Slam final as the final show-down in Melbourne is around the corner. The Briton knocked out Marin Cilic 3-1 in set in his semi-final and has lost only a set on his way to the final.


Whatever the outcome, his Australian Open performance will add extra belief and interest at Wimbledon among the Britons. And if he makes it there this summer, well, I guess we all will feel a bit Scottish. After all, it was 74 years ago since Britain got a male Grand Slam singles champion.
