Italian great Valentino Rossi goes into Sunday's MotoGP title decider in Valencia with his hopes of a 10th world championship hanging by a thread after a court ruled he must start in last place.However, the Lausanne-based Court of Arbitration for Sport said in a statement it had dismissed Rossi's application and upheld a stewards' decision from last month's Malaysian Grand Prix.Rossi leads Spanish rival Lorenzo by seven points, with 25 for a win, ahead of a finale that has been overshadowed by controversy since the last round in Malaysia.Spanish media have compared Rossi's actions to those of Italian defender Mauro Tassotti who elbowed Spain's Luis Enrique in the face in an infamous incident in the quarterfinals of the 1994 World Cup.
