I wouldnt put those in Serena's top 5. She had periods of sloppy play in both.

CLAY

01 ROLAND GARROS QF 2003: def. Mauresmo 6-1 6-2
02 ROLAND GARROS SF 2003: l. to Henin 6-2 4-6 7-5
03 CHARLESTON SF 2012: def. Stosur 6-1 6-1
04 ROLAND GARROS SF 2002: def. Pierce 6-1 6-1
05 ROLAND GARROS QF 2009: l. to Kuznetsova 7-6 5-7 6-3
I had forgotten that Mauresmo match. I will have to add that to my list later. Probably her best performance ever on clay. The Pierce match was good but Pierce was so slow and fat around then it was hard to guage. I dont think she played anywhere near her best in that Kuznetsova loss.

INDOOR HARD COURTS

01 AUSTRALIAN OPEN F 2007: def. Sharapova 6-1 6-2 (feels weird to count this as indoors, but oh well)
02 YEC F 2012: def. Sharapova 6-4 6-3
She played some great matches at the 2001 and 2009 WTA Championships too.
