Peter Moraing (born 13 September 1961) is a former professional tennis player from West Germany.[1]


Moraing appeared at two Wimbledon Championships during his career.[2] In the 1988 tournament he faced tenth seed Andrei Medvedev in the opening round and won the first set in a tiebreak, but went on to lose in four sets.[2] The West German competed in the men's doubles at the 1993 Wimbledon Championships, with his younger brother Heiner Moraing.[2] They were beaten in the first round by the Spanish pairing over Sergio Casal and Emilio Sánchez.[2]

He defeated top 30 player Slobodan Živojinović at the Open de Moselle in 1986 and also that year had a win over Todd Witsken, en route to the Tokyo Outdoor round of 16.[2]
