She is a left-handed shakehand attack player and comes from Liaoning, China, the province where Wang Nan, Chang Chenchen and Li Jia (all left-handed players) come from. She is the potential leading player in Chinese woman team. Her original partner in women's doubles was Niu Jianfeng, who comes from Hebei. Currently, her partner is Li Xiaoxia, who is also her roommate.
Guo experienced series of losses in international games which led to her disappearance from the public eye for almost half a year. It is officially claimed "To help her mentally adjust". At the 2006 Asian Games in Doha, Guo returned to competition and took first place in Women's Singles, Women's Doubles and Women's Team. In 2007 from January to July, Guo attended six International Opens and won four gold medals. At the selection match for 2007 World Table Tennis Championships in Zagreb, Guo qualified early on.
Guo Yue won the 2007 World Championships in Zagreb, Croatia, by defeating her compatriot Li Xiaoxia in the women's singles final. She also won the mixed doubles title with Wang Liqin.
Rumours were rife in 2010 when Guo Yue was cited for "poor behaviour" and lack of interest in playing table tennis. An incident, cited on Chinese forum Tianya, stated that she was once tasked to attend a meeting and failed to do so, hence causing friction with China's top player Wang Nan. After the London 2012 Olympics, she was switched to a provincial team. In 2015, she was officially kicked out from the National Team and has gone on to study finance at Tsinghua University.
