Born in Asunción, Paraguay, Granada moved to the United States with her mother at the age of 14 in 2001 after receiving a scholarship to attend the David Leadbetter Golf Academy in Bradenton, Florida. While a student there, she earned numerous junior amateur titles. She was named to the American Junior Golf Association All-America Team from 2001 to 2004, and was the AJGA player of the year in 2004, when she won the U.S. Girls' Junior Championship. Granada graduated in 2005 from the Pendleton School, a private school established solely for students attending the Leadbetter Academy and other affiliated IMG sports academies.
Granada turned professional in June 2005 at age 18 and competed on the Futures Tour that summer, joining in mid-season. She placed second in her first and sixth events and won her first professional title at the season-ending YWCA Futures Classic in late August in York, Pennsylvania. Granada won $29,153 in nine Futures Tour events to finish seventh on the 2005 money list, which advanced her to the final stage of the LPGA qualifying tournament in December. She finished tied for sixth in the five-round event to earn her LPGA card for 2006.
In her rookie season on the LPGA Tour, she was 19th on the 2006 money list going into the season-ending LPGA playoffs at the ADT in November. She won the final round of the elimination-format event in Florida to claim the first $1 million prize in women's golf and vaulted up to fourth on the money list. At the end of 2008, Granada attended qualifying school for the Ladies European Tour (LET) and has played on the LGPA and LET tours since.
Granada won the gold medal at the 2014 South American Games and the bronze medal at the 2015 Pan American Games. She was the flagbearer for Paraguay at the 2016 Summer Olympics, where she finished 44th.
