Former champions Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Juan Martin del Potro try to reach the U.S. Open quarterfinals, while top-seeded Karolina Pliskova and No. 4 Elina Svitolina face American opponents in women's fourth-round matches.
Vandeweghe, 26, was eliminated in the first round at Flushing Meadows a year ago and has never before gotten this far here.
The typically reserved 25-year-old even saw her temper boil over during her match on Wednesday when she threw her racquet violently to the court in disgust after hitting a forehand long to hand the first set to Vandeweghe.
The loss ends the run of Brady, the 22-year-old who reached the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the second time this year, but not without valuable experience and match success that she will take with her going forward.
She won 56% of the rallies under four strokes, which accounted for the vast majority as both women looked to back up heavy serves with quick winners.

He further said that "those who broke the alliance in Bihar will see a larger alliance being formed at the national level soon". Seated in the front row were Lalu Yadav wife, sons Tejaswi and Tej Pratap Yadav, and daughter Misa Bharti, a Rajya Sabha MP.
The No. 1 seed is back into the quarters in Flushing Meadows for the first time since 2013, when he won his second of two U.S. Open titles. They work just as hard as I do.
Although Vandeweghe's performances at regular WTA Tour events in 2017 have been largely underwhelming, she has frequently impressed on the biggest stages.
However, the home favourite responded immediately for a third successive break of the set to regain command of the set to move 4-2 ahead before holding serve to move within one game of claiming victory. She went 30-40 down, saved the break point and then went to match point with a forehand victor. After the match, Vandeweghe talked about what winning this match meant to her. The victor will face Vandeweghe in the semifinals. We have to admire Serena, Venus, Lindsay [Davenport] and Jennifer [Capriati].
"Maybe I'm going to feel better on the next grand slams". Asked about the progress of the Americans here, Vandeweghe said: "I watched the match last night with Venus and she said it best. Let's make it four for four". The mini break in the first point of the tiebreak was enough to see her take the first set, and if Pliskova was to keep her No. 1 ranking, she had to come from a set down.
Pliskova held the top seeding for eight weeks, but she will be replaced by the defending Wimbledon champion Muguruza.
