in 1984 mcenroe was going to play the australian open in nov/dec but withdrew cited 'injuries to shoulder' but then played in the davis cup final a week or so after..saving himself for final ??..didnt want to travel ??..really injured ??...
shame he didnt want to, or try to play in the aust open that year..likely he wouldve won that major..or an excellent chance to win it.
i bet if he had won the 84 french open..somehow he wouldve played in the aust open in nov 84 and gone for the 'grand slam'.
