"PEAK OF ..." index (based on career best 4GS performances in the row)

This formula which i use to calculate career peaks of all current TOP40 players is not perfect b/c use only theys career best consecutive achivments at 4 most important tennis tournaments (and ignore all others tournament results) but is realy relevant for sure. For all calculations i use current official WTA ranking system for every grand slam rounds:
W=1000pts, RU=700pts, SF=450pts, QF=250pts, 4R=140pts, 3R=90pts, 2R=60pts, 1R=2pts, w/o=0pts.

Career PEAK index
Code:
1. Serena Williams (USA)        4000 pts    4GS since RG/2002:  VV-VV-VV-VV

I must admit that only thing which realy shocked me when i see results after finished this work is very strange Cliche how looks mostly of this career 4 best GS results in the row. In about 50% cases (19 of 40, 10 of 15+5) best career 4GS results in the row starts for some player with some of Roland Garros tournament!? In about 30% cases (11 of 40, 5 of 15+5) they started with some of Australian Opens and only in about 10% of all this cases (players careers TOP4 GS records in the row) theys start with Wimbledon or USO!? I realy dont have any idea about reasons for so extreme disproportion but this strange phenom is so obvious that i must notice that.

Capriati's peak was so much more impressive than the rest of her career. Shame, really, that she didn't keep up the hard work to stay in shape.

What the hell? Jennifer became one of the fittest and fastest players on tour because of her hard work. How dare you criticise her for not keeping in shape? Her shoulder ruined her career, not her fitness. Her fitness was not a problem from 01 to 04.

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.
Clijsters, Henin, Dementieva, Davenport.
Martina Hingis - "No one else played like Hingis - no one could."

Thanks

Because my tips error in her case (R4 instead 4R for RG/2005) program not recognize and not calculate that her result. Now i corrected that and Sveta overtake Dementieva and have equal score with Myskina.
