Which Tournament has the most stupid name?

Here are my nominations...

Uncle Tobys hardcourt classic! It sound like Toby makes his own little tournament every year.

Proximus Diamond Games > Sound like a drag queen convention.

Dubai Duty Free > Held in the sky on numerous clouds.

Family Circle Cup > What next, the Good Houskeeping Classic, Womans Own Open???

DFS Classic> DFS DFS DFS!!!

Pilot Pen > ???

Polo Open > Porche Tennis Grandprix, Acura Classic, JP Morgan Chase Presented by Audi, and then the POLO Open, doesnt really go does it.

Volvo Open > same as above.

I know what Uncle Tobys is, but still it sound like a daft name for a tournament. Would you have the McDonnald Classic or the BK Open?

I'm sorry, but "Volvo Open" just sounds pornographic. So it gets my vote.

Although I almost voted "Other" for the Nasdaq-100. That one just sounds odd to me.

Ah, but the French Open is now called Roland Garros! So your plan has already been thwarted.

But people call the slams by there other names as well. Melborne Park Rolland garros and Queens. Also some people call Wimbledon the championships.
