Brady has won four singles titles and four doubles titles on the ITF circuit. In October 2017, she reached her best singles ranking of world No. 60. In April 2019, she attained her career-high doubles ranking of world No. 48.
Brady had previously attended the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), having made her debut for the Bruins tennis team in fall 2013. During her freshman year at UCLA, she helped her team win the 2014 Division 1 Women's Tennis National Championship in Athens, Georgia. She completed her sophomore year of college before turning professional in 2015.
Brady first played in the singles main draw of a WTA tournament at the Carlsbad (California) Classic in November 2015, reaching the semifinals. She reached the quarterfinals at Guangzhou China in September 2016, where she also reached the quarterfinals of the Guangzhou doubles tournament.
Brady reached the singles main draw of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time at the 2017 Australian Open after winning all three of her qualifying matches. In the main draw, Brady defeated Maryna Zanevska, Heather Watson, and 14th seed Elena Vesnina. Her run came to an end in the fourth round with a straight set loss to Mirjana Lučić-Baroni.
Due to her success at the Australian Open, Brady was able to obtain a spot in the main draw of the remaining three grand slam tournaments without playing the qualifying rounds. At the French Open, Brady lost her opening round match to the 13th seed, Kristina Mladenovic. At Wimbledon, Brady lost in the second round to the 8th seed, Dominika Cibulková, in straight sets. At the US Open, Brady defeated Andrea Petkovic in the first round, the 23rd seed Barbora Strýcová in the second round, and Monica Niculescu in the third round. Facing top-seeded Karolína Plíšková in the fourth round, Brady was beaten, 6–1, 6–0.
