Maybe, the biggest question mark of the open era.

That decision may have changed history.
i guess his favorite tournaments were on the itf/grandprix tours?
wimbledon, french, monte carlo, etc.., and him being european wasnt the wct an american tour?

anyway i think you may have been right earlier, he probably knew he was on his way out anyway... he played monte carlo in 82 and 83 but you could say his last match was essentially that 81 us open final... borg even said in interviews he struggled with motivation all year in 81 so it was just the inevitable that was eventually going to happen and the tour didnt make it any easier for him trying to make him qualify
