NICE, France (AP) — Nicolas Almagro of Spain beat Gilles Simon of France 6-1, 6-3 in the Open de Nice on Friday to reach his third final of the season.

Almagro, who had lost his previous two matches against Simon, hit eight aces and saved all four break points he faced.

He won on indoor clay in Sao Paulo in February and bids for his 12th career title against either Russia's Nikolay Davydenko or American Brian Baker, who were playing later Friday.
