Last year's runner-up John Isner will face top seed Nicolas Almagro in the US Clay Court Championships final on Sunday following gripping semi-finals in Houston.

Home favourite Isner put on an impressive display, coming from a set down to defeat defending champion Juan Monaco 1-6 6-4 6-4.

Almagro, however, was dominant throughout as he beat wildcard Rhyne Williams 6-2 6-1 within an hour.

Williams, ranked 144th in the world, had defeated Guido Pella, Ivo Karlovic and Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo to reach the last four but had no response against the Spaniard.
