A day in the life of Ole Miss Rebel Isolde de Jong

Slamstox tennis player Isolde de Jong takes you around Ole Miss University and shows you what her life as a student-athlete is all about.

If you have seen the movie The Blind Side, you might remember Ole Miss University, the university at which American football star Michael Oher developed to become one of the nation’s best American football players. Although Isolde is not (yet) as famous as Oher, she does follow in his footsteps.

In 2018, Isolde finished her VWO education in the Netherlands and decided to go to the United States to reach her potential both as a tennis player and as a student. In January, Isolde, the former Dutch national champion and #126 in the ITF rankings, started her second semester as an ‘Ole Miss Rebel.’ She plays tennis in the highest division of college tennis and competes against teams with some of the world’s best former junior tennis players. Her own team, which she considers as her closest group of friends, is represented by girls from all over: Croatia, the United States and the Czech Republic – Isolde is the only ‘Dutchie.’
