I am not sure about that. If you are standing in a legitimate position on your side of the court, I don't see that the opponent can claim a hindrance just because s/he cannot do a follow through. What if, instead of blowing on the ball, you hit it with your racquet? You are still in a position right up against the net - are you saying that the opponent can claim a hindrance if unable to perform their follow through without hitting you? This specific situation is not addressed in the rules, but it doesn't sound like a valid hindrance to me.
