Of course not. She can even lose to injured players like Razzano

Still struggling with the distinction I see.

Definition of unbeatable: "Impossible to defeat or surpass"

Federer could beat her, Djokovic could beat her, Nadal could beat her. Historically there are quite a few women who at their peak would have won at least some of the time against peak Serena. Ergo, she's not unbeatable. She's just difficult to beat.

Btw, the question in the OP was "Is Serena unbeatable when not injured", not "Is Serena unbeatable when she hits 87% first serves".

She wasn't injured in the Olympics 2008. It's one of those matches where a very healthy and competitive Serena was beaten.
