​Joining a couple hundred fans on the first level of the Eiffel Tower, Maria Sharapova got a workout in and pressed flesh with that throng this week in Paris. Here's the full video, courtesy Nike's "We Own the Night" campaign:​ 

 

The Russian has had a good deal of spare time since her early ouster in Rome last week after titles in Madrid and Stuttgart. Still, the 2012 French Open winner says she's pleased with her progress this year after a rough start due to shoulder trouble stemming from an August 2013 injury.

​Sharapova is set to square off against Serena Williams if both reach the quarterfinals at Roland Garros. Do you expect that, and if so, who do you think will emerge victorious?​  Sound off below.​
