Tennisfilter: How would you score this crazy shot?

Tonight, I was playing tennis with a friend when I hit one of those shots that I will most likely never hit again in my life and neither of us knew of course how to score it.
On the play, I mis-timed an overhead slam near the net, hitting what was probably only about 1/16th inch of the underside of the ball. It had enough forward momentum to land about four feet on my opponents side of the net, but had so much backspin that it actually bounced back over the net onto my side of the court off the first bounce. My opponent was nowhere near this shot and had no chance to even touch it.
He argued that it was his point since the ball landed on my side. I argued that it was mine since it had actually hit his side and he had no play on it. Which one of us is right?
