It seems that Chinese star Zheng Jie decided that she has abided in the shadow of Li Na's ebullient personality long enough. Watch her learn how to channel her inner Jay-Z under the tutelage of a native Kiwi in New Zealand. She even performs the "Go and brush ya shoulders off" move from the rapper's "Dirt Off Your Shoulder" track.


And she serves notice, much like Milos Raonic did in 2011, as to the correct pronunciation of her name.

You tell 'em, Zee-J/Jay-Zyou gotta get. that. dirt off your shoulder!
