AMSTERDAM (AP) - Roger Federer beat Robin Haase 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 to clinch Switzerland’s victory against the Netherlands in their Davis Cup World Group playoff Sunday.

The world’s top-ranked player was rarely troubled by the 50th-ranked Haase on the temporary clay court in Amsterdam as he comfortably sealed victory and his team’s return to the World Group next year.

With the outcome already determined, Thiemo de Bakker beat Stanislas Wawrinka 6-2, 7-6 (4) to make the final score 3-2.

Federer and Wawrinka won their opening singles Friday and lost in doubles Saturday to Haase and Jean-Julien Rojer.
