It's all part of the game. You just have to learn to deal with it. Serve calls are always tough. On the close ones, a lot will depend on if the returner makes a good return (make a good return, the serve was in; miss it, the serve was out).
Here's another hint for you. The guy that is generous with his line calling when he is up 5-2, is going to be "less generous" at the end of a tight set. Just human nature.
Here's another tip. Your opponent is thinking the exact same things about you with respect to your line calling.
