Serena Williams has warned the rest of women's tennis there is more to come from her after she was named WTA player of the year for the second year running and the fifth time overall.

Williams enjoyed one of the greatest seasons in WTA history.

She won 78 of 82 matches, the US Open and French Open among 11 titles, and a record US$12,385,572 in prize money.

Since February, she's been the oldest No 1 in WTA history. She's now 32.

She says, "I have some areas where I can do a lot better for next year and I look forward to it. Overall I'll remember the wins, but I also want to learn from my mistakes so I don't repeat them."

Williams was also player of the year in 2002, '08, '09 and '12.
