Sean Connery is pumped

RIGHT ON!

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

Juan Monaco of Argentina beat Julien Benneteau of France 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 on Sunday to win the Malaysian Open, his fourth title this season.

The 11th-ranked Monaco needed just over three hours to edge out Benneteau in the tournament's longest match this year for his first hard-court title.

It was the first meeting between Monaco, a clay-court specialist, and the 34th-ranked Benneteau, who beat top-seeded David Ferrer of Spain in the semifinals.
