The ball usually hits them both at approximately the same time. If you are having difficulty telling if the ball hit the front wall or the floor/ground first, you can usually tell by the angle of deflection off the front wall. If the ball bounces up, it more than likely hit the ground first. If the ball bounces straight out, it usually means it hit the wall first. At higher speeds though, it becomes more difficult to tell but most people who can hit it fast enough to have this problem can tell by how they hit it if it was good or not. If it is a point of contention, just play the point over.
