Their head to heads are 2-2. They last met in a Fed Cup tie in Roumania. Halep won in straight sets. Konta’s wins were both on hard courts in 3 sets. Her last win was in March this year in Miami.
Similar records for them this year. Konta won 75% of matches and Halep won 78%.
Halep hasn’t dropped a set so far. Her opening set has been tight in every round. Azarenka took her to a tie break in the last round.
Konta has dropped a couple of sets so far. Garcia pushed her hard in 3 sets in the last round and in the second round she took some revenge over Vekic for beating her in the recent final in the final in Nottingham.
This looks like being a 3 setter. Both have served pretty well. Konta has been broken 7 times and Halep 8 in the tournament.
Some value on Konta to take a set. I give Halep the slightest of edges to reach the semi finals.
