Default Modern day battle of the sexes

I stumbled upon this video of Jimmy Connors taking on Martina Navratilova in a exhibition where Connors was only allowed one serve and Navratilova was given extra space to hit into (about half the size of regulation doubles alleys). Jimmy won pretty handily.

But just a curious thought...

What do you think would be Serena Williams chances against a top 10 ATP player today if he were only given one serve and she were allowed to hit into the doubles alleys? And I'm talking about the standard sized doubles alleys and not the half sized ones in the video above. Do you think she'd be able to run away with at least a set?
