Im sure if the ball stays in and I call a hinderance(and claim the point) the guy would be kinda ****ed. I mean its like calling a serve in or out, have to call it pretty quick, but is hard to think..."is that....? can I call it.....?" too late!
There is another option.
You can stop, call a hindrance, but rather than claim the point you can offer your opponent a let. Most people realize they aren't supposed to talk while you're hitting and will be happy if you cut them a break.
Me, I prefer to just play the ball regardless of what utterances I hear from the other side. Only if someone deliberately tried to distract me would I claim the point.
