I'm not sure that this "rule" applies all the way up to pro levels. I think a 6.5 male player (satellite level) would easily defeat most if not all female pros, even the 7.0s.
But of course Errani would just crush a male 5.0, even asking the question is silly. "Female pro vs. male rec player" seems to be an evergreen of TT stupidity...
