I'm having to deal with a newborn right now, so menopause is looking good to me. "Normal" women will still be ovulating and having periods at 46, but pro athletes, their periods are always messed up and we don't know what kind of stuff Martina has taken over the years (legal stuff I mean), and all her hard training, it's possible it's come and go right now, but she' probably still getting it. A lot of it is genetic. My mother didn't stop until about 53 or so, and the younger you are when you start, the older you will be when it ends. I was 11, so I know it's still a long haul. We'll never know, but I imagine she is still having to deal with "the curse" and it is a curse, at least for me.
