As others have mentioned, this is currently not possible, however you can export a single file. The result won't be a working copy though and you will not be able to commit any changes.

What may seem like a glaring miss is a deliberate design decision by the svn team. Among the reasons is the fact that svn needs some place to store its working copy informations and these reside in a hidden folder inside the working copy - that why the working copy needs to be at least one folder. The upcoming sparse directory support may help solving the issue...
