Pretty much every standard AP mid can beat kennen. He gets played solo top in ranked because he cant harrass well mid because Thundering Shuriken gets blocked by minions. Get Brand/Annie/leblanc/Kassadin/Talon/Cassiopia/etc. and stay behind your minions. Unless he is way better than you it should end in a victory for you

Kennen doesn't actually have much in the way of real hard counters. While he may be disadvantaged against several AP champions, he can still farm the lane with relative ease thanks to his Q, and nobody can really prevent that short of eating every single one.

He does best against melees, but his harrass gets shut down by heavy sustain and some MR. It'll still be hard to actually kill him, though. Unless you're Leblanc or a good Ahri (or other heavy burst champ), but that goes without saying since they do that to pretty much everyone. He still has the ability to turtle and farm regardless though.

Outplay him basically. He needs three charges to stun you and his shuriken can be dodged. He wants to kite you, so it's pretty much up to how well he actually manages to do that.

With rules of your fight someone with sustain will pretty much automatically win.

I've beaten him solo top with Yorick and Kata quite easily, Morde is never a bad choice either.

Kennen is one of those 'decent' lane phase characters, who's purpose is mostly teamfights rather than winning early. Kennen can survive in lane, but he's not hard to counter or do well against.
