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.
I agree with you Limpinhitter.

The RG final that Borg played against Lendl which Borg won in five sets really wasn't indicative of Borg's normal play. I believe Borg was hurt when he played the French in 1981 and despite that he beat Lendl.
