Simona Halep in action during her fourth round match against Victoria Azarenka. With a victory over Konta in the quarterfinals, Halep will likely become the world No. 1 after Germany's Angelique Kerber was defeated by Garbine Muguruza of Spain in the Round of 16 on Monday.
It's the first time a British woman has made the quarter-finals since Jo Durie in 1984 but Konta has proved a pro when it comes to keeping a lid on emotions and dialling down expectations.
Feeling her error had been prompted by the out-call, Konta briefly protested but she quickly recovered and stormed into a 3-0 lead in the tie-break. Over three decades later, her near-namesake Konta showed equivalent composure to come through a tight three-setter that was decided by just a handful of crucial points.
She won the first game of the decider to love but it took nine games before either managed a sniff of a break.

Konta has neither forgiven nor forgotten Halep's team-mate Sorana Cirstea, who was outspoken in her criticism of the British number one, after their tie was suspended when Nastase unleashed a torrent of abusive language and stoked up the home crowd.
"To be honest it was such a tough match to play, she's in good form and serving really well".
