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.
For most tennis players a good forehand is the key to success. The natural stroke movement makes it especially easy to play. At the same time it is an effective means to put pressure on the opponent. That is why the forehand is often used to hit winners. Generally the forehand is the first stroke that beginners learn when they start playing tennis.

The forehand is one of the most important strokes in tennis. It’s usually the one that guarantees a player US Open success. Juan Martin Del Potro proved it when he won the 2009 US Open, defeating Roger Federer in an exciting 5 set match in the finals.
The topspin forehand is the second most important shot in tennis. You might be able to win a match without one, but you won't enjoy it. The topspin forehand is the swiss army knife of tennis strokes.
