Rafael Nadal holds a perfect 9-0 record over Nicolas Almagro and has already beaten his compatriot this season in an Acapulco semi-final.

Though both Rafa and Nico have yet to drop a set all week, their history in Barcelona points to yet another Rafa victory tomorrow. While Nico will be appearing in the finals for the first time in 10 appearances, Nadal will be seeking his eighth title in nine years. Rafa has only earned an incredible 38 consecutive wins since his last loss there in 2003.
