Serena Williams has sent out a stark warning to her rivals that there is even more to come from her after being named WTA player of the year for the second year on the bounce and fifth time overall.

Williams enjoyed a magnificent season, losing just four of her 82 matches, winning the US Open and French Open among 11 titles, and raking in a total of $12,385,572 in prize money.

Now 32, Williams has been the oldest No.1 in WTA history since February. She was also player of the year in 2002, 2008, 2009 and 2012.

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