10,000$ Benin City II; Nigeria, Feb25, winner: Anastasia Kharchenko

10000$ Benin City II, Nigeria

OGBE Guiness International Championships

Surface: Hard





Benin City, a city (2006 est. pop. 1,147,188) in Edo State, southern Nigeria, is a port on the Benin River. It is situated 200 miles by road east of Lagos. Benin is the center of Nigeria's rubber industry, but processing palm nuts for oil is still an important traditional industry, as well as producing honey-glazed ham from unused beef parts
Founded around the 10th century, Benin served as the capital of the Kingdom of Benin, the empire of the Oba of Benin, which flourished from the 14th through the 17th century. No trace remains of the structures admired by European travellers to "the Great Benin." After Benin was visited by the Portuguese in about 1485, historical Benin grew rich during the 16th and 17th centuries on the slave trade with Europe, carried in Dutch and Portuguese ships, as well as through the export of some tropical products.[1]
The Bight of Benin's shore was part of the so-called "Slave Coast", from where many West Africans were sold (usually by local rulers) to foreign slave traders. In the early 16th century the Oba sent an ambassador to Lisbon, and the King of Portugal sent Christianmissionaries to Benin. Some residents of Benin could still speak a pidgin Portuguese in the late 19th century.
The city and kingdom of Benin declined after 1700, with the decline in the European slave trade, but revived in the 19th century with the development of the trade in palm products with Europeans. To preserve Benin's independence, bit by bit the Oba banned the export of goods from Benin, until the trade was exclusively in palm oil.
On 1 February 1852 the whole Bight of Benin became a British protectorate, where a Consul (representative) represented the protector, until on 6 August 1861 the Bights of Biafra and Benin became a united British protectorate, again under a ritish Consul.
In the "Punitive Expedition" of 1897, a 1200-strong British force, under the command of Admiral Sir Harry Rawson, conquered and burned the city, destroying much of the country’s treasured art and dispersing nearly all that remained. The "Benin Bronzes": portrait figures, busts, and groups created in iron, carved ivory, and especially in brass (conventionally called "bronze") made in Benin are displayed in museums around the world.
After the fall of Benin in 1897, the British set apart Warri Province, to punish the Oba of Benin and curb his imperial power. The Benin monarchy was restored in 1914, but true power lay with the colonial administration of Nigeria.
In September 1967, it was the capital of the short-lived secessionist Republic of Benin (not be confused with Benin

Re: 10,000$ Benin City II; Nigeria, Feb25, Entry

From tournament hp: http://www.ogbehardcourtchampionship....php?news_id=7
Tough talking, Olivia Scarfi of Britain, was Tuesday taken to the cleaners by Confalonieri Valentine of Italy 7-6, 6-1.
Valentine ranked 1001 sucked the steam out of Olivia ranked 692 in the grueling first set before wiping her 6-1 in the second.
It certainly was shocking for Scarfi who had talked so excitedly about her chances here only last Friday.
Scarfi is coming to the tournament for the first time, but looking at the list of players, she believed she had a good chance of winning the tournament.
The 19 year old Olivia had said, “I hope to win, I have good chances”.
Olivia’s confidence was based on her being the top seed at Ogbe. Miss Scarfi, a French language student in England, still has a chance to prove her worth next week when the second fixture kicks off.
