This scenario is the closest I could find and that is directly dealt with in "Friend at Court" by the USTA:
“If the receiver or an official asks the server to stop discarding the ball, then the server shall stop. Any continued discarding of the ball constitutes a deliberate hindrance, and the server loses the point.”
This is the only "rules & regulation" I could think of/find. It's US based but I'm pretty sure that, as a "gentlemen"'s game, rules are directly impacted by politness and etiquette, especially in such an old sport. Therefore, I think that referees around the world have such a book at hand when they're on a tournament and that it should apply, no matter the level you play at. So if your opponent says something or complains, you should stop.
