SYDNEY (AP) - Roger Federer has arrived in Australia to join the Swiss team ahead of its Davis Cup World Group playoff starting Friday.

The 16-time Grand Slam winner arrived later than his Switzerland teammates after his grueling five-set loss to Novak Djokovic in the U.S. Open semifinals on Sunday.

Federer has just two days to adjust to the grass courts at Royal Sydney Golf Club before his first match of the tie against Australia.

Federer is expected to play two singles matches. He might also partner with Stanislas Wawrinka for doubles on Saturday.
