What is this??

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.

Hey! Take the NEW Tennis Poll. Please?

here are the results

It's 2007! Seven years since the last update! Wow...time flies. Yes my email still works so if you have any updates or things you want me to add, email away! Some random tennis links: The Tennis Channel WTA unofficial Message Boards

Matthew told me that Irina retired unannounced after Wimbledon 2000. Well it was good while it lasted, who knows, she may come back some time. Have fun Irina!!

It's 2000, and Irina's going to do better. There's even two other websites for her.
