Serena Williams, who had one of the greatest seasons in WTA history, was named player of the year for a fifth time.

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 $12,385,572 in prize money.

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

"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."

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