Nordqvist and Tseng join four-time champion Karrie Webb AM and two-time champion Laura Davies CBE in what is shaping as the finest field in the championship’s history.

CEO Stephen Pitt said Golf Australia was looking forward to welcoming two of the world’s top 10 women to Melbourne.

“We’re very pleased to have players of the calibre of Anna and Yani join us at Commonwealth Golf Club,” Pitt said.

“At just 22 and 21 years of age respectively, these two women have made stunning starts to their professional careers which is reflected by their world ranking and we’re thrilled that fans will be able to see these talents live on Melbourne’s sand-belt,” Pitt said.

The 2010 HANDA Women’s Australian Open is held from 11-14 March at Commonwealth Golf Club.
