The 12-times grand slam victor also called for fifth-set tiebreakers to be introduced at the tennis showpiece after completing the men's quarter-final line-up with a 6-2 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 victory over unseeded Frenchman Adrian Mannarino.
Muguruza won the French Open a year ago, but followed up her first major title by losing in the second round at Wimbledon.
But his biggest gripe was having his fourth-round clash with Mannarino postponed until Tuesday due to Gilles Muller's four-hour, 48-minute win over Rafael Nadal on truly a manic Monday at the championships.
Wrapping up the women's quarter-finals, big-hitting Coco Vandeweghe from the United States will hope her new coach Pat Cash, a former Wimbledon champion, will give her the edge as she takes on Slovakia's Magdalena Rybarikova.
With his scheduling problem now out of the way and a three-set match in the books, Djokovic can turn his focus to Berdych. Ostapenko was the 13th seed at Wimbledon after winning the French Open as an unseeded player earlier in the year. But one of those losses came right here at Wimbledon in the semifinals of 2010 tournament.
Many fans had hoped the Djokovic-Mannarino match would be played under the Centre Court roof, and under lights, but instead it will go ahead on Tuesday at midday.
Just to remind you, yesterday Djokovic and Adrian Mannarino didn't play because the organizers refused to move their game to some other place, despite the fact that all other courts at All England Club were available for play.
There were 6 mini-breaks in the first 7 points but Novak managed to convert his second set point to increase his lead to 2-0.
Back then, Muller defeated the Spaniard at just his second Wimbledon appearance, just after he had won his first Grand Slam title at Roland Garros - and it was the only time (until today) that he had got the win.
The runner-up at the All England Club in 2015 beat Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-3, 6-4 on No. 1 Court in a match that was delayed at the start by rain.
"I mentioned that there is a hole in the middle of the court, the middle of the service line, and he just asked me to show him", said Djokovic on court after the match. The victor will go through to face Czech Tomas Berdych in the quarter-finals. He was to play Adrian Mannarino.
Five-time champion Venus Williams made it on the Centre Court bill, while British home favourite Johanna Konta was put on Court One, which holds 11,000.
"Finally when the [Nadal Muller] match was over, we thought, Okay, we have two and a half hours, we can go to Centre Court".
