Being the OP of this thread, these kinds of stalling tactics are so subtle that many players don't even realize it is being done to them. Another is the towel at the back of the fence on every point. As i said i am used to playing pretty fast so stalling absolutely kills my rhythm. I start to force shots. Distractions like grunting don't bother me as much.
