2015–2016Edit

Brady first played in the main draw of a WTA singles 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.

2017Edit

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.[5] Her run came to an end in the fourth round with a straight set loss to Mirjana Lučić-Baroni.[6]

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.[7] 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.[8] Facing top-seeded Karolína Plíšková in the fourth round, Brady was beaten, 6–1, 6–0.
