Nicolas Almagro defeats Phillip Kohlschreiber to reach the final of the Barcelona Open.

Nicolas Almagro has booked his place in the final of the Barcelona Open after cruising past Philipp Kohlschreiber in straight sets in the semi-final.

It took the Spaniard just over 50 minutes to beat his German opponent 6-2 6-1 in a rain-delayed match.

The eighth seed rarely challenged the Almagro serve, bringing up no break points during the contest.

Kohlschreiber won just 15% of points on his first serve, compared to 52% from the fourth seed.

Almagro will face either Rafael Nadal or Milos Raonic in tomorrow's final.
