Default Definitely would be higher

Given how fast Borg acquired titles - if he was playing the Australian with the same frequency he would have acquired more. I think he should have retired around 1985 instead of 1981 from Slam play. It's clear that he was very capable of winning:

1982 French Open
1983 US Open (remember stats show that Connors/Lendl were playing at a lower level in 1983 than 1982)
1981 & 1982 & 1984 Australian Open (and maybe the 1983 AO - Wilander won, so wouldn't Borg have at least as good a chance?)
