For example I checked several sports and betting sites for

K. Nishikori vs A. Dolgopolov

and

J. Tsonga vs D. Goffin

And other matches. The order of the players names is always the same at all sources so there must be a convention. I can't work out what the convention is though. It does not seem to be alphabetical or reverse alphabetical by first or last name and it does not seem to be by seeding/ranking.

So how is the order of the names determined? 

Thanks

I've never thought about this, but I'm pretty sure it's based on the draw.

In this case Nishikori is played above Dolgopolov, he is on the upper half whereas Dolgopolov is on the lower half, so Nishikori's name goes first. I checked WTA Dubai's draw for the week, and the name order for these seems based on the draw too, http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-Archive/posting/2017/718/MDS.pdf
