Shadow Priests and probably also Warlocks.
Boomkins are also pretty hard for a hunter.
Basically the ranged classes with a lot of instant casts (DoTs) that can also heal and are good at mitigating damage. The hunter interrupts and the hunter kiting abilities aren't worth too much in these fights. One of the biggest problems a hunter has: his health knows only one direction, and that is DOWN (BM can heal a bit, the Chimera heal is pathetic). It's getting fixed in MoP (Exhilaration in combination with Crouching Tiger).

"Fear has its use but cowardice has none."
will the class meet every other class in this tournament?
if so, id say mage has a chance to beat more classes than any other class in a duel.
but, every class has a counter. hard to say
Every class except warriors :P
here's a list of specs that beat a sp:
dk (any spec)
frost mage (dunno bout fire)
probably equal chance to win vs ret
enhance (if played right)
aff locks is prob equal.
keep in mind any undead class will make the spriest life a bit more miserable.
A high rated hunter can beat any class
Feral/Fmage. Rogues are digusting too, but my issue with Rogues is mainly smokebomb, recuperate, having a million interrupts, the best slow in the game and how stupidly easy their burst is. Feral/Frost both have abilities that are too strong in an independent environment, and even Rogues complain about Ferals.
I feel like I may be underestimating BM Hunters as I've been hit with 35k KCs before through 5k resil and 48.22% physical damage reduction, who knows how much it hits for on cloth/leather. Well, you know what I mean.
It is better to be hated for who you are than to be loved for who you are not.
I've asked myself such hypothetical questions, like lets say a rogue could beat 9 out of 10 classes (or 8 out of 9, if rogue vs rogue is considered a tie). A hunter gets beaten by 9 out of 10 classes, but lets also say that the hunter owns rogues. Now, because rogue is such a good class, the tournament would be full with rogues. How high is the chance for a hunter to win this tournament? lol ;-)
This was an extreme and hypothetical example, but it would happen in reality too, though to a lesser extent.
In general 1on1 is considered rock-paper-scissors, but rock-paper-scissors, in most cases, only works perfectly if there are exactly 3 participants. With 10 classes you would have rocks that have to fear 7 papers, and others rocks who would have to fear only 2 papers... So yea, theoretically there is a class which is best at 1on1.

Rogue... If they feel like it they'll just vanish, run very far away and wait for cool downs before opening up on you every time.
a fully raid geared mastery/stam stacked Blood dk would eat any dps class.. casters would have the only reasonable shot, but you can just play the LoS game to keep em in range. and healers wont matter, as stated by OP winner after 10min is whoever does the most dmg.
Your Add Here!
I'm wondering that there is no 1on1 "Tier List" for a game which is played by 10 million people. Even if only 5% of the players are interested in duels, that's still a lot (500k).
I'm refering to a tier list like it exists for Street Fighter, one like this: TIER LIST
I know that that game is specifically desgined for 1on1, but still... 1on1 also exists in WoW, even if it is not a focus for the developers.
With your rules rogues auto win. Open with stun do damage vanish. Win by most damage after ten minutes. Also repeat whenc CDs are off.
1. sub rogue
hunter/rogue is... difficult. overall rogues are the best. but vs an amazing hunter... rogues can lose like 60/40.
