TORONTO, April 28 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell at the open on Tuesday on a combination of lower oil prices, fears about the stability of the U.S. financial sector and pressing concerns about swine flu.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 121.00 points, or 1.29 percent, to 9,273.80. Nine of its 10 sectors were lower. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; editing by Peter Galloway)
