Unlike a guitar, where leaving unstrung can cause damage due to the truss rod configuration, a tennis racquet's natural "equilibrium" is unstrung. As you string it and increase tension, you are moving further and further away from equilibrium. The lower the tension, the closer to equilibrium and the safer it is for the racquet.
