3. tempo = enthusiasm
4. saw = resulted in

Option B: squared = lost does not match.

Based on the given passage all other three usages are apt. The usage “squared” (earlier was behind) should mean that the series was tied after this match – either $1-1$ or $2-2,$ meaning the current match was won.
