I was being a bit facetious. I don't think any of them had Borg genuinely worried. He would have continued to be the favorite at the FO and any other clay event for years to come, and a threat at Wimbledon, the USO and AO (if he wanted to play there). I think he was just burnt, wanted a lighter schedule, and the majors wouldn't give him a free entry into their events without qualifying. So he just quit.
