Suljovic's success was hailed by both his fellow professionals as well as leading personalities on Twitter - including Stephen Fry, who has almost 13 million followers.
Over 3,500 tweets were made in the UK in the hours following Suljovic's success, showing the world number seven's growing popularity in the sport.
