Esmeral Özçelik Tunçluer (born April 7, 1980)[1] is a Dutch-Turkish basketball player for Fenerbahçe İstanbul. The 1.75 m (5 ft 9 in) national competitor plays in the guard position.

Tuncluer is probably the best shooter on the team, deadly from almost any range. Tuncluer is the closest player Turkey has to a dominant guard and if left unattended she can sink any defense with her marksmanship. Her body language sometimes does not reflect the overall aggressiveness of the team but that’s only a poker face as she is committed and intense on both the offensive and defensive end of the floor.

She played with Beşiktaş Cola Turka, Fenerbahçe, Botaş Spor and Mersin Metropolitan Municipality. Tunçluer won the Turkish Women's Basketball League champion title with Beşiktaş in 2005 and with Fenerbahçe İstanbul in 2007 to 2011.

Tunçluer was member of the national team at the 2005 Mediterranean Games in Almería, Spain, which won the gold medal. She played 170 times for Turkey national women's basketball team.
