Whats not given is what this photo represents. You're arguing from their conclusion its 'courting behavior'.

How is that determined again?

Animals don't dig for no reason - if the dinosaur had to spend its energy on digging, it had to be for a reason. Since the holes have the size of a nest, and since there are no eggshells in it, then a probable logical conclusion would be that the holes are display for courtship (display of fitness for reproduction) - a courtship behaviour which is by the way also expressed by ostriches and some plovers, which happen to descend from theropods themselves.

No, it's just that until now we didn't know that dinosaurs displayed any form of courtship. Turns out romance is older than expected...
