Is it an Optical Illusion Tennis Match or is it just Australia?

I think this is how M.C. Escher played tennis! Imgur user cynicalnihilisticromantist submitted this photo of an optical illusion tennis match - or is it just a regular tennis match being played down under in Australia?

Because the image is flipped (with the exception of the players), the vanishing points of the court boundaries are wrong; ending behind the viewer instead of the horizon. That makes it look just wrong.

No, it's Photoshopped, but so many of those Escher-style illusions create ambiguity between foreground and background, which is especially easy to do when things don't appear smaller when they are more distant.
