Here is my best explanation:

'tennis call' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I can't tell whether it can be defined by this definition.

'don overturned' is the wordplay.
'don' becomes 'puton' ('put on' can be a synonym of 'don').
'overturned' says the letters should be written in reverse.
'puton' backwards is 'NOT UP'.
