Nice! Do you remember which ones? I might write an article on this, so this is extremely helpful.
I only remembered that it was three times. After some googling: 2003 AO SF vs Clijsters, 2005 AO SF vs Sharapova and 2009 W SF vs Dementieva
Thanks, nice of you to Google. Next time, tell my lazy butt to do it. :)

Remember the Dementieva match point where Serena guessed correctly at net where she was below average on that day.

Was that the Wimbledon semi 2008? One of the best matches I have ever seen. Just one that’s burned to to my brain for the quality and tension, not because I am a Serena mega fan.

Great piece by Zina Garrison, who has been in Serena's inner circle from the beginning

Muguruza's op-ed on Serena for El Pais. "I cried when she told us she was retiring, which is very rare for me. Somehow, her goodbye has shut down something inside me; something was extinguished."
