Hitting a tennis forehand is all about getting in the right position and creating power from your shoulders. First, get into position with the racquet in front of you, your knees slightly bent, and your weight on the balls of your feet.
For your forehand, use the same arm that you throw a ball with. The forehand swing is performed while the palm of the dominant hand that is holding the racket faces forward. Essentially, the tennis forehand is made by swinging the racket across one's body in the direction of where one wants to land the ball.
The forehand is the most important shot in tennis, after the serve and return. Around 75% of all winners from the baseline, on the ATP tour, are hit with a forehand. That’s why it’s so important to build a reliable and consistent forehand in tennis, one that will allow you to construct points and hit winners when the time is right.

It’s true that an advanced forehand is a mixture of complex elements, but it can still be broken down into simple elements. The two main engines that create power for the forehand shot in tennis are the rotation and extension of the arm. Note how the hips moved when Federer began rotating into the ball.
The forehand swing path is very similar to a bowling motion. To get the feel for the bowling motion, you can simply take a few tennis balls and bowl them towards a target. After 20 or so repetitions, take your racket and see if you can implement this feeling of bowling into your swing.
