Exactly. I've overruled my partners and had them overrule me and no one (thankfully) has ever got in a tizzy over it.

It probably helps that I make a point before the match starts (if I'm with a new partner) of specifically telling them I want them to overrule any bad calls I happen to make and I'll do the same.
2" from being an excellent tennis player!
