"I'm speechless, I don't know what to say," she told Sky Sports after the win.
"I feel really happy because I have proven something for women’s darts, that women can play the men and beat them, so fingers crossed this is a move in the right direction. I’m over the moon, I can’t believe it!
"To be on the biggest stage there is, wow!"
On Sunday night, women's world champion Mikuru Suzuki was beaten narrowly by James Richardson.
Sherrock will play number 11 seed Mensur Suljović in the second round.
"I'm speechless. I feel really happy, though, because I've proved that we can play the men and we can beat them."@Fsherrock on her historic win over @SuperTed180 at Alexandra Palace.
