World number 313 Gauff surpassed Williams – 24 years her superior at 39 – 6-4 6-4.
Fellow American Williams had gained four Grand Slam titles – including two at Wimbledon – before Gauff was born.
“It’s the prime time I have ever wept after winning a match,” stated Gauff, who earlier told Venus and sister Serena was her “idols”.
“I don’t know how to articulate how I sense.
“I unquestionably had to put myself to wait still, I had to mention myself that the lines are the same lines, the courts are the same size and following every point, I told myself ‘wait for noiseless’.”
Gauff will face Slovakia’s Magdalena Rybarikova – 15 years her superior – in the second round.
Well, Williams became expert 10 years prior to her competitor was born, with Gauff being the youngest player to qualify for the main Wimbledon draw since the Open era started in 1968.
She earlier said the Williams sisters encouraged her initially to pick up a tennis racquet.
“Venus congratulated me and wished to keep going, she answered good luck and I told her thanks for everything she did,” Gauff added.
“I wouldn’t be hither if it wasn’t for her – I knew her she was so encouraging and I’ve constantly required to inform her that but I’ve never had the guts to before.
“My parents will be super smiling, my dad was topping up every time I won a point. I’m so delighted they spent all their time on me and my brothers and executing sure we’re victorious.
“I never imagined this would occur. I’m exactly breathing my dream right now”.
“I’m absolutely delighted Wimbledon provided me the opportunity to play, I never imagined I would get this far.”
