You understand that most of the reason Arcann is seen as an impressive combatant is because of his power in the Force and that it wouldn't be impressive for Vaylin, who is more powerful, to stalemate him unless we had a baseline for Arcann's own skill level ( which we don't ). There's also the fact that she only managed to stalemate Senya in their fight who we know is vastly inferior to Caedus as a combatant.
Then we have Caedus who is largely inferior to Luke Skywalker as a Force user managing to hold his own against him in a duel.

Why you assume that Senya is vastly inferior to Darth Caedus as a combatant?
Have a look at these revelations:
"Reflexes and instincts honed over thirty years of training allowed Senya to keep the killing blow at bay… but only barely. She ducked and darted to the left, leaping over one of the raging walls of fire crisscrossing the camp."

"Senya had spent decades mastering the art of hand-to-hand combat. If Vaylin wanted to fight her, the outcome was inevitable."
Source: A Mother's Hope
Emphasis mine. Senya honed her combat skills non-stop! her reflexes and fighting instincts would be top-notch with over 30 years of investment in honing her combat skills. This was the requirement to hold Vaylin at bay in a lightsaber duel, barely I shall add.
And we clearly see Vaylin stalemating Arcann in a lightsaber duel. People have mistakenly assumed that Vaylin is weak in a lightsaber duel because she failed to beat Senya in her game*; it won't surprise me if Vaylin can out-duel even the likes of Revan and Darth Vader.
*Emphasis on the italic part.
Regarding Arcann's dueling abilities; we see him exchanging blows with the Outlander without any problem and if the Outlander is Hero of Tython, then we have a solid footing to gauge Arcann's dueling skills.
Well, Darth Caedus is expected to be a serious threat to Vaylin in a lightsaber duel.
