Select the revision in the log dialog, right-click, choose "show changes
as unified diff". The 'patch' (a patch is just a unified diff file) will
open in your default text editor or the patch viewer you've configured
in the TSVN settings dialog.
Save that unified diff to a file and you have your patch.
