The eighth seed will meet American Lauren Davis in the final
after seventh-seeded Jelena Ostapenko retired trailing 4-1 in
the third set due to illness.
The unseeded Goerges stunned former world number one Caroline
Wozniacki in the quarter-finals but Konjuh ensured there was not
another shock at the tournament in which top seed Serena
Williams was upset by fellow American Madison Brengle.
Ostapenko took the first set against Davis 6-4 before the
American leveled the match and the Latvian was unable to
continue after falling behind in the decider.
"I woke up with a fever, with coughing and everything. I feel
much worse today than yesterday," Ostapenko said.
