American tennis player who was active in the late 1940s and 1950s. Her highest US national tennis ranking was 4th.

At Wimbledon in 1949 her outfit was a short tennis dress with ruffled, lace-trimmed knickers, which was short enough for her knickers to be visible during the match, a first for any tournament. Her outfit drew considerable attention; reporters covering the event began calling her "Gorgeous Gussie", and photographers fought for positions where they could get low shots of Moran, with the hope of glimpsing the lace. The event scandalized Wimbledon officials, prompting a debate in Parliament.

She became a sports newscaster, then became active in manufacturing and selling her own line of tennis clothing. She became co-host (with Tom Kennedy) of a daily TV interview show in Hollywood called Sundown.

Moran was married three times, and had no children. She died in Los Angeles, California on 16 January 2013 at age 89.
