Having battled back from 0-3 down, Halep served for the match at 5-4 in the second set and was two points away from victory in the tiebreak before Konta roared back to force a decider before sealing her place in the last four.
"I'm really happy to have come through and am looking forward to the next round," said Konta. "It's going to be a tough one."
