Andy Murray is presently perched at No. 8 in the ATP rankings, and he suffered a loss as defending champion in Miami against Novak Djokovic that may leave a bit of a bad taste in his mouth. That said, he's an eager endorphin glutton in his commercial for Rado Switzerland watches that ran throughout the Sony Open.

Watch him, in this clip, perform the following: Hailing a taxi, jumping rope in the presence of uniformed schoolchildren, leaping tall stone walls and sunbathing senoritas in a single bound, locking eyes with weightlifting hunks, doing pullups Baywatch-style, and more:

What a rush the making of this clip must have been. That's Andy Murray, though: Forever fit, more so than the bulk of his opponents, and apt to work harder to get what he wants. Eat your heart out, Ivan Lendl.

And that catalyzes an intriguing question, Spin readers: Do you think Murray, currently the holder of two Slam singles titles, will match his now-former coach's haul of eight? As always, sound off below.
