Williams shook his head in mild embarrassment, refusing to crack a smile at his astonishing feat.
The former world champion is currently ranked No 7 and overcame his opponent 10-5 to advance to the next round.
He will face qualifier Robert Milkins who overcame Neil Robertson with the Australian becoming the sixth seed to go out in the first round.
