I am looking forward to my experience at Liberty and cannot wait to begin contributing to the continued success of the team!"

"We are very excited to welcome Polina into our family! She is an outstanding competitor who will become an impact player very quickly. She has big goals, just like we do, and I have no doubt that she will be able to accomplish them. But most importantly, she is a wonderful person who possesses a sweet personality and will integrate very well with our team. We can't wait to have her out on the courts with us next year!"
