He was contemplating fewer "non-major" tourneys and a real focus on the FO, Wimbledon, and the U.S. Open.
One thing I couldn´t understand, at that time, was Borg didn´t enter a few WCT events, were there were no restrictions at all - and he certainly would be more than welcome-.
As a matter of fact, Borg and Hunt were on the same shore, both fighting the stupid hegemonist attempts of the ITF ( which run the Slams and the Gran Prix ) led by Chartrier.
Do you know why? after all, Hunt was all for free enterprise, isn´t it? and some WCT matches with, relatively low pressure on him, would habe kept Borg´s body, hand and mind in shape enough to wait for rules to change in 1983 or 1984.
