If you can just watch the ball, move into position early, get your shoulders turned, you'll have half the battle already won.

I watch Fed's forehand video so many times but I still have difficult time to copy it. It probably requires hundreds and hundreds practice.

Fuzzyyellowballs.com has a wonderful breakdown on the basics of the pro forehand. They have a series of videos on what (on a basic level) every pro does to hit a forehand. It basically shows professional fundamentals without overcomplicating the forehand itself.

Move to the ball in the stalking position,
loop down below the incoming ball as the ball nears the bounce,
find the contact from below using your hand and laid back racket,
Accel up and across the contact to a nice strong follow thru.

All the while keeping the head stable and body in balance.
