Rain washed out play at the tournament on Friday, forcing organizers to schedule the quarterfinals and semifinals on the same day.
It will be Almagro's second final in as many weeks after winning the Brazil Open last week -- also on clay.
"It's a special day to win two tough matches in a row," said Almagro, who improved to 3-0 in matches against Robredo.
