I watched this match the other day and decided to put it on youtube, what a great match!
What is interesting is two things:
1. Hingis' intelligence and skill on a tennis court when Seles was really having a go at her
2. The different dimension indoor supreme bought to tennis in terms of speed and the fact the court had a lower bounce on average than today.
I think players like Agnieszka Radwanska, Jelena Jankovic could have excelled on this type of surface.
Many good tactical players such as Hingis, Maleeva, Radwanska, and also players like Kerber and Jankovic play(ed) really well indoors.
And yes, this was a great match.
Magdalena Maleeva's last words at her send-off:
"There is a saying that there is no friendship in tennis, but I've proven the opposite. After all of them are here, it means that there is friendship and I want to thank them for being here tonight. I hope the fans are happy too."

Actually that's a good point about Angelique Kerber, she would have loved indoor supreme because she is very good at getting down to the ball, supreme would have suited her just fine.
At the same time, I think Kvitova would have loved indoor supreme because the ball comes quickly and she likes pace and likes coming to net, it would have suited her style of play and made her swing serve very difficult to return.
I am trying to imagine how Wozniacki would have feared on indoor supreme, that is tough to figure out.
