Are you allowed to question calls in tennis?

What is the Golden Rule

Your mom and dad taught you the Golden Rule, didn't they? Why? Because it condenses appropriate behavior into one sentence. "Treat others the way you wish to be treated." The same holds true for an opponent and a questionable call. There's nothing wrong with challenging the call, but once a call is made, accept it, and proceed with the next point. Call it the golden rule of tennis.
