    the downfall of the shot is that if you do it at one side of the court you are exposed for a cross court which most the time they do and win the point (this is only in non serious games)
    It is eactly because of what is said about a quick return would defeat this move that makes such a move pointless as legitimate play - it is nothing more than a move to distract an opponet. According to the rules, distracting an opponent when he/she is trying to play a shot is a fault. The same can be said when a plyer makes a noise when an opponet is playing or attemptiong to play a shot.

    Is this video considered as blocking the stroke or obstruction considering both the block and opponent racket stroke is very near? Chen Yu won a point here.

    It's considered a legal shot. He did not leave his racket there in attempt to obstruct the opponent in any way. He took a swing at the shot which is legal unless Jonassen were to reach over on the kill and it hit Chen Yu's racket.

    And you're not allowed to stay still apparently, your feet have to be moving or it is classed as obstruction

    rubbish.

    it is up to umpire to decide whether blocking is obstructing the othe rplayer, but it has nothing to do with keeping moving. Intent also has no bearing.

    I have never heard of this rule. If someone doesn't have their feet moving but attempts a swing, I will not call a fault for obstruction.
