David Ferrer takes on compatriot Nicolas Almagro later today in the final of the Copa Claro in Buenos Aires.

Ferrer vs. Almagro always seemed like the most likely final this weekend. They dominated the South American clay-court events in recent years and Ferrer in particular has seemed a class above the rest of the field all week.

The world No. 5 is yet to be really troubled this week. He easily dealt with Chilean legend Fernando Gonzalez in the quarter-finals and eased past David Nalbandian 6-1 6-4 in Saturday's semis. As you would expect, Argentine players have enjoyed a lot of success at this tournament over the past decade, but Nalbandian had never beaten Ferrer on clay and never looked like he believed he could win.

Almagro has found things a lot tougher, but the world No. 11 has plenty of belief in his game on this surface, particularly after winning the Sao Paulo title last week, and that saw him through his semi-final clash with Stanislas Wawrinka (6-4 3-6 7-5).

Almagro won more clay-court matches than anyone last year (32 in total), but he's never beaten Ferrer before and lost three times to his nemesis on clay last year.

It looks ominous for the defending champion.

Prediction: Ferrer in two.
