Drada, a left-handed player from Cali, represented the Colombia Davis Cup team in two ties, against Canada in 1995 and the Bahamas in 2000. His only ATP Tour main draw appearance came at the 1996 Colombia Open, where he lost in the first round to Gastón Etlis in three sets.[1] He had a best singles ranking of 607 in the world.[2]

Now living in the United States, Drada was a collegiate tennis player for the University of Kentucky. During his junior year he had a win over James Blake, then the top ranked college player.
