I was referring to the "jump' and the "photo" you mentioned. Could care less (of course) about the point or the overheads. I don't recall Connors jumping after the overheads point. But there was a famous shot of him, when a photographer caught him in a sprawling jump after Krickstein with the shoe soles up in the air. It was even used in a full page advertisment...I assumed that was the photo you were referring to.
I don't see any jump in the clip you mentioned. The most famous jump/photo, one that was used in full page advertisements occured in the Connors/Krickstein match of that tournament. Connors leaped in that one, with his shoe soles nearly perpendicular to the court, and this was caught by one or more pro photographers.
PS. 44 seconds into the video, Connors is making a forehand return, so I have no clue what you are referring to.
4:53 is where the photo came from.
