However, he did win the 88 USO (as well as the AO and RG in 88 ). His Parking Lot Press Conference
happened during that US Open. His possible subsequent involvement with the creation of the ATP Tour and the demise of the Grand Prix may have distracted him later in 88 and in 89. The whole Lockerbie bombing incident in Dec 88 might have deeply disturbed him. (This is all conjecture on my part).
