Just to clarify, I think you mean "immediately after" you hit the ball, not "as you hit the ball." The face has to be basically square at contact for the ball to go into the court. It should be pointed to the right after contact though.

This Safin video shows it pretty well: (Contact at :54, racquet face pointing right at :55).
