I've seen the same thing when my daughter was playing with hitting the balls to some far end so that my daughter would have to walk pretty far to get them.
What's the point?
Some of these kids are just nutty. I am sure it is their parents influence.
My advice for the OP's kid, is that he should just laugh at that type of behavior and keep playing his game.
It truly is laughable some idiot kid yelling "yes, yes" on his opponent's errors at some junior tournament.
It's a joke, he should laugh and then keep playing his game.
