I would delete "deliberately."

I (too often) inadvertently induce sidespin because of a poor stroke. I wouldn't think it wrong to call that inadvertent side spin "english."

I'm ambivalent about whether to consider draw and follow "english." According to Danny DiLiberto's story about how the term came about, I think it had to do with the excessive sidespin a particular player used effectively, so I lean that way.
