Maria and Venus , the only 2 players that won against Serena in a GS F?

I was watching Maria's match and heard the commentators saying that the only 2 players that have beaten Serena in a GS final are Maria and Venus, is that true?
If so that's really special and makes Maria one of the 2 players ever to beat Serena in one of the most important matches.

According to Wikipedia Serena was in sixteen grand slam singles finals. She won thirteen of them. The three she lost were the 2001 US Open (Venus) Wimbledon, 2004 (Sharapova) and Wimbledon, 2008 (Venus).

It's unfortunate that Maria developed a shoulder problem in 2008. Otherwise, she should have won a lot more than 3 gram slam titles by now.

You waked up pretty late... Rena has lost very little when she has made the final of a major.

And Maria is unique that's also not new.

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.

Stats just show that Serena really knows when it's important to bring her A game.

Yeah Fran or Sam aren't great players if you compare them to Serena

In the 19 slam semifinals that she has played, only 3 players have managed to beat her and in the 43 slam first rounds she has played, no one has beaten her
