This is the first fan page for Irina Spirlea. If I'm wrong tell me.
Irina is my favorite tennis player, not only for her tennis playing but for her off and on court antics.
Remember the incident at the 1997 U.S. Open? I do and that was the first time I,
and probably the U.S. heard of Irina Spirlea.
