Bern, Switzerland:

Switzerland's tennis federation says Roger Federer will play in the Davis Cup playoff against the Netherlands this weekend.

Swiss Tennis spokeswoman Sandra Perez tells The Associated Press that Federer is scheduled to arrive in Amsterdam on Wednesday and will play in the opening singles matches on Friday.

Perez says Federer "is ready for everything that is needed."

The world group relegation playoff is being played on outdoor clay courts. Federer has spent the past three months playing tournaments on grass and hard courts.

Federer had not committed to representing his country after losing in the U.S. Open quarterfinals against Tomas Berdych in New York last Wednesday.

The winner this weekend stays in the top-tier, 16-nation world group.
