Houston: Top seed Nicolas Almagro, whose 12 previous ATP wins have all come on clay, reached the final of the US Clay Court Championships on Saturday by routing wild card Rhyne Williams 6-2, 6-1.
Spain's Almagro squares off in Sunday's final against last year's runner-up John Isner, who won a re-match against defending champion Juan Monaco 1-6, 6-4, 6-4 in the other semi-final.
"I think I played better than yesterday," said Almagro. "I felt good today. I'm very happy with my game. I tried to be focussed all the time. That's important for me. I tried to play aggressive, and I did it."
