Roger Federer beat Robin Haase 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 to give Switzerland victory against the Netherlands in their Davis Cup World Group playoff on Sunday.

The world No. 1 was rarely troubled by 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.

''I felt like I was always somewhat in control,'' Federer said, in an understatement.

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.
