Sean Connery is pumped

RIGHT ON!

Sean Connery is fired up about the US Open. And he is pretty hyped about these things, too.

Blake won 86 percent of points on first serve and broke Olivetti three times. Blake will face fourth-seeded Florian Mayer of Germany in the second round.

The American lost his first six matches of the ATP World Tour season, but has improved to 8-12 overall.

The 20-year-old Olivetti, ranked 213th, was playing in only his fourth match on tour.
