Bedtime? He don’t need no stinkin’ bedtime. This excitable young little whippersnapper was probably pretty pumped up to begin with for being able to stay up way past his bedtime to take in some U.S. Open action on Wednesday night, but his excitement meter red-lined after American tennis star James Blake broke Ivo Karlović to get back on serve in the fifth set in a first round match.

The kid also loves sporting a Captain America shirt and headband while cheering on his hardcourt hero.

Rock on, little man. Rock on.

Sadly for this little guy, Blake lost to Karlović in a fifth-set tiebreaker after blowing a two-set lead 6-7 (2), 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 (2), 7-6 (2). It was also the last singles match of Blake’s career. But for one brief moment around midnight, Blake’s play inspired one young tennis fan to totally rage. Which is pretty awesome.
