This is a really common problem. Receiving serves is the hardest part of the game. It is really a lot to do with the amount of times you have seen the serve and played against it.
If you understand the basics then it is a mater of experiencing it more. If you can read other types of serves then it is definitely the case. I find the Reverse Pendulum serve more difficult than other serves because I never played against it competitively.
Find someone with good serves and get them to play a lot of games with you or just do serve and receiving practice if you can.
