Why does a tennis ball go flat?

A tennis ball is essentially a pressurized rubber ball covered with cloth. The rubber is not completely impermeable, however, and slowly leaks over time, just like a latex balloon eventually loses its air. Also, the rubber loses some of its elasticity, although that effect is probably negligible, inasmuch as even unused tennis balls that have been removed from their pressure pack become "dead."

Hitting with flat tennis balls doesn't necessarily hurt your strings all that much, but it definitely hurts your game. They can hurt your strings a little if you are using all of your might to swing into the tennis ball, and because it is flat the ball will flatten out over the strings and cause more areas of the string to become weaker.

Two opposing professional tennis players can go through a brand new tennis ball in under an hour. It really depends on the use of the tennis ball, though.
