Definition: Stroke used in a game of tennis when the ball goes to the forehand side of a player. See Wikipedia Definition. Before ball arrives always be in the "ready position" on the balls of your feet and knees slightly bent. Back swing with side turned to target: pivot on non-racket foot, bring racket back, move whole arm (wrist is locked), weight on back foot.
Index finger can easily support the weight of the racket. It gives us very good support under the racket, and the racket rests nicely. So, check how your current forehand grip looks and make sure you add this little index finger technique in there so that your racket will be more stable in your hand.

A tennis forehand is one of the two types of groundstrokes. It refers to a shot performed from the baseline with the racket held in your dominant hand.
