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
Many WCT events in Europe, and the Autumn finals also in that continent.No excuse at all, he had alreadpy planned to quit and was just looking for an excuse...
