Prades qualified for his first Grand Slam tournament in 1989, at the Australian Open.[2] He played West German Hans-Dieter Beutel in the opening round and was beaten, despite winning the first two sets.[2] It wasn't until the 1992 French Open that he got another chance to play a Grand Slam, entering the event as a wildcard.[2] He defeated Byron Black in the first round and then met third seed Pete Sampras.[2] The American won in straight sets, although Prades did manage to force two of those sets into tiebreaks.[2]
