Rafa Nadal is reportedly furious after video was leaked online of his pregnant wife Xisca Perello being admitted to hospital in Spain.

Nadal is currently in New York playing in the US Open, but his thoughts are with wife Xisca in their hometown of Mallorca.

Xisca, who is believed to be about 32 weeks pregnant, was admitted to hospital late last month as a precaution due to complications with her pregnancy.

However things have taken a nasty twist after video emerged on social media of Xisca being admitted to hospital.

Nadal and the couple's families are reportedly 'very angry' about the leaked video and are said to be considering moving Xisca to a different facility.

According to Spanish publication Marca, the video shows Xisca arriving at Palma’s Hospital Quironsalud Palmaplanas.

The family claim Xisca's medical information was also leaked to the media and are “looking for the guilty parties”.

In a positive development, Xisca is reportedly out of danger but will remain in hospital as a precaution.

According to further reports, Nadal is considering leaving the US Open and flying home if his wife needs to undergo surgery or the baby needs to be delivered prematurely.

The World No. 3's sister Maria Isabel has reportedly joined Xisca's parents in keeping her company while she is hospitalised.

Rumours had been swirling in the lead-up to Wimbledon in June that Xisca was pregnant after she was seen with a noticeable baby bump as she holidayed with Nadal on their yacht in Mallorca.

The Spanish champion then confirmed the wonderful news in a pre-tournament press conference.

"If everything goes well, I'm going to be a father," he said.

"I'm not used to talking about my private life. We live more peacefully with a lower profile. I don't expect that my life will change much with it."

The couple are reportedly having a baby boy, due to arrive in October.

Rafa Nadal eyeing place in third round at US Open

Nadal will be aiming to join Spanish protege Carlos Alcaraz in the third round when he plays Fabio Fognini on Thursday night in New York.

Alcaraz fended off a late push from veteran Argentine Federico Coria to emerge with a 6-2 6-1 7-5 win.

The young Spaniard used his all-court speed and punishing forehand to win the final 10 points of the first set and broke Coria's serve to open the second to cruise to a two-set lead.

Coria refused to go down without a fight and pushed Alcaraz in a marathon game at 4-4 in the third set.

But the third seed, who saved 14 of the 15 break points he faced in the match, rifled two unreturnable serves to get out of trouble and sealed the win with a two-handed backhand for his 46th victory of the year.

"It's been a great year for me but it's not the end of the year," Alcaraz said.

"I am very happy to be the player with the most victories but I have to look forward and go for it."

Next up for Alcaraz is a meeting with American Jenson Brooksby, who beat Cincinnati Open champion and 25th seed Borna Coric 6-4 7-6 (12-10) 6-1 earlier in the day.

The Californian saved seven set points in the tense second set to reach the third round at Flushing Meadows for the second consecutive year. Last year, he took the first set off Novak Djokovic before falling to the eventual runner-up.
