AMSTERDAM (AP) — Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka lost to Robin Haase and Jean-Julien Rojer of the Netherlands 6-4, 6-2, 5-7, 6-3 in doubles to cut Switzerland's lead to 2-1 in the Davis Cup World Group playoff.

The Dutch pair dominated the 2008 Olympic doubles champions in the first two sets before Federer and Wawrinka rallied to take the third on the outdoor clay court.

Haase and Rojer broke Federer's serve in the seventh game of the fourth set and broke Wawrinka to seal the match.

Federer plays Haase in reverse singles on Sunday and Wawrinka takes on Thiemo de Bakker in the final match.
