Serena can come back from a huge down yes, but I doubt that she can still win after missing many chances against someone who she's REALLY afraid of in a Grand Slam final.
But that's the thing, Serena isn't afraid of anyone, whereas Nadal is. They gained their mental stability in different ways; Serena think she's the best, whereas Nadal only thinks about never going down without a fight, and sticking to his game plan religiously.

He looked deep into his eyes and said, "You're perfect."

"No, I'm not. But with you, I don't even care."
