ball Drops on the line I react to hit it at the last second and hit it right to him and he puts it away...
Again this has happened before, where a guy hits a bad shot and yells out(regardless of the ball going in or out) and it throws me off.. I wanted to call a let. but didnt since I didnt know if I could.
Yeah - that bugs the hell out of me when that happens. I try to play through it, but it's annoying and distracting. If someone does it a lot I'll ask them to please not talk during the point - but I've never actually stopped play and claimed the point.
And, to be honest I've been the one to yell NOOOO a couple of times and then have the ball drop in. I've apologized and offered them the point but no one has taken me up on it yet.
