The seventh seed was one game away from winning a day earlier when the match was halted due to rain. He took less than a minute to wrap it up on Wednesday.

"That was quick," Blake said. "It's a different situation than you're used to when getting ready for a match."

A two-time finalist of the event, Blake moves on to face Robin Haase in the second round.
