Sorry, not a true optical illusion this time, but I really had to post this amazing set of images. What’s going on here, is that this is the World’s highest tennis court. The photos are taken when Andre Agassi and the world No. 1, Roger Federer were shooting a commercial for Dubai Duty Free Men’s open. They were having friendly fight on the tennis court of Burj Al Arab in Dubai. You may notice a security mesh was preventing possible falls. Jump inside this article for more of these.

    That fantastic, not sure if i would want to stick my life on the line playing on that thing though.

  2. Pouch says:

    thats awsome… although im 99% sure that that is a helecopter landing pad made to look like a tennis court for the commercial. thats intence though.

  3. Bravery Onions says:

    what if a tennis ball falls off and kills someone?

  4. M@kk says:

    It IS a landing pad. But the costs for the commercial will cope a life…

  5. Hawkmage says:

    There is no way a falling tennis ball could kill someone. It’s mass to volume ratio and wind resistance would not allow it to be traveling at lethal speeds, it would be traveling around 70 mph.

  6. pooter says:

    i dont think anyone stupid enough would jump of a high tennis court to get a stupid ball

  7. Cool says:

    It’s on the Burj al-Arab Tower in Dubai. I think it’s a landing pad.

  8. genius says:

  9. cole says:

  12. Dijiboutiiii says:

    what if they fell and then landed on someone and died i don’t think that is real safe not having a fence around it.

  14. MatthewC says:

    Its not gonna kill anyone
    ive been here
    the hotels made on an island
    the ball would just fall into the water

  20. Tennis Plaza says:

    This court would have been perfect to set a record for the longest in air lob record…..

  21. Basioh says:

    i realy don’t understand why there isn’t a roof ore something there… and they should’vr build the field straight above the water.

  22. Anonymous says:

    that is a landing pad ive been to that hotel and i use to live near there

  23. Anonymous says:

    It would totally suck to lose a tennis ball over the edge!!

  24. Anonymous says:

  28. tutifruti321 says:

  29. matt says:

    it would suck to have a box of never used tennis balls and trip on the and you fall in the safty fence but the box falls over the edge

  30. WTF says:

    Wow, that’s great. Look at the slums down below with people starving while these douchebags are playing tennis without a care in the world.

    AWESOME!

  31. Greg says:

    Geeze, there is only a really low, narrow barrier around that court! I’d be terrified of going back to return a shot and falling over the edge.

  32. kevin says:

    this really isn’t an illusion

  33. lolipop101 says:

    not really an illusion but its must BEAUTIFUL view

  34. Someone says:

  35. kakaka says:

  36. alli says:

  37. mumfydood says:

    u guys are weird i cant belive you think its an illusion its clearly NOT !!

  38. Yes I have seen Burl Al Arab Hotel and this is its helicopter pad where they temporarly made world’s height tennis court. Worth watching hotel and don’t forgot to see their disco at 26th floor.
    hehehe

  39. MissyMiss says:

    I really am wondering why they have a fence like that for someone to just trip and die? Like what the hell!

  40. shruthi says:

    u guys are crazy u think somebody will cost their life to play a syupid tennis match. and u think im nuts ,this is an illusion!!!!!!?????????? i would like to play tooooo!!!!!! hahahahahahahaaha

  41. toip says:

    if a ball hit someone at the base of the back of the neck it could kill them.

  42. Pablo says:

    Fake.. You could easily fall over the mesh. The barrier should be vertical, NOT horizontal. Very silly.
