Licia, I have trouble with that too. I've found that if you get the lemons out of the fridge and let them warm up, then roll them around on the counter, it's easier to get the juice out. The fork thing works pretty well. It also helps to cut them in quarters, as they squeeze more easily that way.
You could always do like Tony Danza, and squeeze them between your teeth!

I press and roll the lemon on the countertop then microwave it for 15 seconds. The juice parctically gushes out when I cut it.
