It depends on how tight or loose I grip the racquet, and how fast and heavy the incoming ball is.
but in general, on average grip and incoming speed, it does torque and the racquet face do open up. The resulting shot is a loopy shot. However, I still impart tremendous spin on the ball.
Sometimes I tilt the racquet down while I swing and that helps a bit to keep the ball from going too loopy ( higher arc ).
