Defending champion David Ferrer beat former winner Nicolas Almagro 6-2, 6-3 on Saturday to advance to the Valencia Open final.

Ferrer will play Mikhail Youzhny, a 6-2, 6-4 winner over Dmitry Tursunov in an all-Russian semifinal.

Third-ranked Ferrer saved the only break chance Almagro had on the indoor hard court while taking three of six break opportunities, Ferrer improved to 14-0 against the fellow Spaniard.

Besides last year, Ferrer won the event in 2010 and beat Almagro in the 2008 final, ending the latter's two-year title run.

It will be Ferrer's eighth final of the season. He has lost five straight after winning at Auckland and Buenos Aires.
