The No.4 seed served at 71 percent and converted five of seven break points to book her spot in her fourth consecutive grasscourt semifinal, 6-4, 6-3.

The defending Wimbledon champion got off to a quick start in both sets, as she broke twice to build leads of 4-1 and 3-0, respectively.

Though Halep got one of the breaks back on both occasions, the German held on to her early lead throughout the match to seal victory in just over 70 minutes.

The three-time Grand Slam champion has now reached the final four in her last four grass court events, dating back to Eastbourne a year ago, and will face unseeded Ons Jabeur for a spot in the final.
