London: Johanna Konta became the first British woman to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals for 39 years as the world number seven fought back to beat Simona Halep 6-7 (2/7), 7-6 (7/5), 6-4 on Tuesday.

Konta thrilled the patriotic Centre Court crowd in a quarter-final classic that ended second seed Halep's bid to become the new world number one.

The 26-year-old, who has never reached a Grand Slam final, faces five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams in the semi-finals on Thursday.

Halep's defeat means Czech Karolina Pliskova, who lost in the Wimbledon second round, will replace Angelique Kerber on top of the WTA rankings.
