After some tests, Tunay took to Twitter to announce that she had a fractured nose.

Tigresses head coach Kung Fu Reyes hopes Tunay would be OK, but said that other players need to step up in the absence of the opposite spiker.

“I hope she’s ok,” Reyes said. “Other players have to step up especially Tunay is one of the core of the team.”

Reyes added Chloe Cortez could fill-in Tunay’s role but the veteran’s presence and trademark intensity cannot be replaced.

“Mela, you all know, has that intensity, that’s her style,” Reyes said. “Chloe has her own, she’s different.”
As he was about to leave the venue, Tunay said she can manage the pain but was obviously dizzy.

“I’m dizzy but I can still walk,” a teary-eyed Tunay faintly said amidst the pain after the collision. CFC
