BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Santiago Giraldo of Colombia beat Spaniard Nicolas Almagro 7-5, 6-3 Saturday to reach the final of the Barcelona Open.

Giraldo will face fourth-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan after he beat Ernests Gulbis of Latvia 6-2, 6-4 in the other semifinal on the red outdoor clay.

Almagro slumped to his first loss in six meetings with Giraldo — a day after one of his biggest wins when he ousted eight-time winner Rafael Nadal at the Real Club de Tenis.

The unseeded Giraldo will be playing for his first career title on Sunday after he saved six of seven break points and finished the match with an emphatic ace.
