I vaguely remember reading in a comic book where Batman said something along the lines of:

If I could rescue one person, it would be Wonder Woman.

Also, most probably it was followed by a panel showing Wonder Woman captured. The artwork seemed similar to Justice League of America (2007) comics(?).

    You should definitely edit that into the question, along with anything else you can remember. Was it a relatively recent comic or something older. Was it in black/white or colour, how was she captured? Who was Batman talking to?

Pretty sure this is Justice League of America Vol 2 #13.

At the start of the issue, Batman and Wonder Woman have both been captured by the Injustice League. Batman soon frees himself from the straightjacket that was placed on him, and then states the following:

BATMAN: Even assuming that the guards are careless -- and they are -- I've got, optimistically, another sixty seconds until my escape is discovered. Just enough time to free one of the others. And if I can only pick one, it's her. Wonder Woman is the best melee fighter in the world.

    It's worth noting that the context here makes it clear that what Batman is saying is that, in the current situation this is the optimal person for him to release. The way OP expressed it in the question, it sounded like this was Batman expressing a global preference. (It may well be that this is also his global preference, of course.).
