Brady reached the singles main draw of a grand slam 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.
