The worlds top sports stars continue to showcase their talents around the world this week and 2BET2 will be with you throughout. Before we give you our top 5 for this week, lets have a look at what happened in our top 5 from last week.

On the ATP Tour we came at you from Japan and China. Defending Champion in Japan Andy Murray was ousted in the semifinals against Milos Raonic. The young Canadian then took on Japanese superstar Kei Nishikori for the title in front of 13000 on center court. The home favourite delivered his second Tour win in 3 sets over Raonic with some attacking play, elevating his status in the process to number 15 in the world.

In Beijing Djokovic kept his unbeaten run in China with his 3rd win in the tornament and his 32nd in all when he comfortably defeated Tsonga in straight sets. In the Ladies draw Azarenka over powered Sharapova again in straight sets, consolidating her position at the top of the world rankings.

In the big rugby clash of the week it was one way traffic as the All Blacks gave the Springboks a rugby lesson with a 32-16 win.

The Japanese Grand Prix saw Vettel close the gap to just 4 points on Alonso following his 3rd win in 4 years at Sazuka.

Barca and Real played out a thrilling 2-2 draw at the Camp Nou, Ronaldo and Messi providing all the goals.

Atalanta continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 24-17 win over Washington.

That was last week, this is our top 5 for this week.

1) FORMULA 1, KOREAN GRAND PRIX

2BET2 brings you all your motorsport, NASCAR, F1 and Moto GP. My pick for this week is F1 as with Vettel’s win in Japan, there is now only 4 points separating Alonso and the German in the Championship standings. This is only the third time it has been held in South Korea, and the 2 previous winners are in fact Alonso and Vettel. With only 5 races to go its coming down to the wire.

2) ATP TOUR, SHANGHAI MASTERS

For the second week running, Andy Murray comes into an ATP Tour event as the defending champion. The Scot is gunning for his 9th Masters Series title in Shanghai, however he has to overcome a class field if this is to happen. Novak Djokovic a semifinalist and winner in Beijing last week lays in wait alongside world no.1 Roger Federer gunning for his 22nd Masters win.

3) NFL, GIANTS @ SAN FRANCISCO

2 teams in top form, both second in their respective divisions, and both with Super Bowl credentials. The 49ers have had a better start to the season and have home advantage. Tough call, why don’t you make it on 2BET2.

4) WC QUALIFIERS, ARGENTINA V URUGUAY

Plenty of quality on show in this game. All eyes will be on Messi to see if he can deliver for country like he does for club. South American Champions Uruguay have plenty to offer especially up front, in the form of Cavani, who has been in sparkling form for Napoli this season. A win for Uruguay could see them go top.

5) HEINEKEN CUP RUGBY, LEINSTER V EXETER

Rugby’s premier club competition begins and defending champions Leinster begin their defence against new comers and much improved Exeter. Exeter have been a suprise package so far with wins in the Premiership against both Harlequins and Saracens, dont be surprised if they add Leinster to that list following their indifferent start to the season.
