Is there any Steffi fan who doesn't remember that shot?

I sort of recall a point in that same final against Hingis where Steffi hit a slice backhand that Hingis couldn't dig up. I think Steffi hit it with such speed (as slice backhands go, I think Steffi has the fastest one because she really leans into it and moves forward), underspin, and precision that it seemed to land right in front of Hingis' feet and she was unable to deal with it. I think Hingis was also sort of inside the baseline at the time so she sort of got caught in no man's land. Maybe I can try to rewatch that match online to find out if my memory is correct.
