I do agree that there may be some psychology involved in the "mystery of second serves".

If the second serves were more effective in general why would players bother to play first serves at all?

Players may be more conservative dealing with the first serves and more aggressive when returning the second delivery. Sometimes they may be too aggressive, make a lot of errors thus increasing server's success behind the second serve.
