Serena Williams has been crowned the WTA player of the year for the sixth time.

Williams, 33, won the US Open title in September to take her Grand Slam tally to 18, and also triumphed at the WTA Finals in Singapore.

She finished the 2014 season in style by winning 26 of her last 29 matches.

“I’m really grateful and humbled to receive this award,” Williams said.

“It’s been an amazing year. I’m truly blessed to be playing at this level this far into my career.

“I feel incredibly supported by my team, my family, the tennis community and the fans. I’m just so happy – thank you!”

Williams has now won WTA award six times in 2002, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2013 and 2014. Only Steffi Graf (eight) and Martina Navratilova (seven) have won it more times
